the reason. #poetry


Do you want to know
why I tell you
how beautiful you are?
Why I hold your hand
when we walk?
Why I whisper to you
instead of talk?

Do you want to know
why my smile
is just for you?
Why I shiver
when we touch?
Why I kiss your mouth
and love so much?

The reason is simple
Can’t you see?
You’re special to me
You know it’s true
And I want to be
special to you, too.

I hate this poem… but it has felt empty around here lately… and I wanted to post. I need things to turn around soon… before I lose my mind…

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  2. Why you should hate something so lovely I do not know, unless it is because of how it makes you feel? It makes me feel good because of the hope it contains, so I thank you for it!

  6. I like it, too, though I can tell its not your usual style. But branching out is good!
