You own My Heart III

Print Save Become a Fan
Once a lover, always a lover.
Until the door opened wide, showing me with silly pride.
I thought I'd seen the last of your hide.
Left you at the bus stop,
It has been more than a year ago
You taught me how to feel,
I was glad that you had gone.
Your lips of fire on mine belongs in a song...
God it’s been such a long time, so easy for you to bend my mind.
Time was when I knew your name.
Love burning hot in a different time frame.
Passion held control of my every thought.
How can this be so overwhelming again?
Your arms are likened to a vise.
They caress as they entice never letting go.
Hours spent in your embrace time has been erased.
You said these were my lessons learned.
I cannot believe how easily you let me melt
As if you never really left me this shell.
At a touch of your hand…I am mister putty man.
No control…again I am a part of you.
Sharing all your thoughts
A part of you I wish I had forgot
Still you own every bit of my heart…
I could only belong… to you.
One kiss leads me on to another world.
I hold on to the dream as passion unfurls.
Lips softly pass over every part of me…
Once again I am entirely gone.
Satisfied, you are done, trying a smile.
As you leave, I neither feel, nor grieve.
You bring out the very best I am….
Your puppet on a string.

|Oh, I liked the mechanics of the poem very much but I have to agree with Jim, a dangling, waiting for her to pull my strings, puppet I would not care to be.|

|I think I can relate to this poem of yours Walter!!
There was once a very special person in my life... also
about a year ago he turned around and walked away....but in my case
never returned to me!!
It hurts...it hurts bad I know!!
Love your poem....although it made me so very sad!!

|To each his own. Somehow I don't think I would care for the puppet part. This reminds me of an old song by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, "But You Know I Love You". It's told from the opposite point of view, however.|
