...Fall into you.


Can I let go and fall into you?

And in your arms breathe you in too?

Can I collapse right on your chest?

Am I overstepping with my request?
 

Can I just love you obsessively?

Can I just need you this desperately?

I want you for me; I want you for life,

I’ll love you forever even in strife.

 

I just want to fall in your embrace,

Call you all day and leave you no space.

To trace with my finger around your lips,

And kiss your hand and fingertips.

 

Crazy about you, (crazy, I know),

Maybe I’m crazy; I can’t let you go.

We love too hard, Lis. I like the honesty and intensity of your feelings in this poem. The fact that at least through writing we can say what we really want is complete satisfaction. Nice work, sweetheart.

Well done, I relate to this one. I love really hard and have periods of borderline obsession with someone, trying to get as close as possible to them and intensify the relationship as fast as possible. Wonderful job Lis

Even though this is romance, I just had to shelf this because this is absolute perfection in passion and lust. You are honest with your words, and the intensity is to the extreme because why wouldn't you say these words? It's a love letter to the works of Shakespeare, because it takes love to another place of poetry, and it's immortalised forever. You should never leave your aura in romance, and don't let anyone tell you that it's repetitive, because it's not; it's fucking beautiful. I'm going to surpass you, and I'm going to write a romantic piece soon. Are you shocked? I have no words left to say, but just beautiful :)

Love can make us crazy at times, and can seem to become an obsession. You captured that very well here. Another wonderful and passionate poem. Loved it.

Love the anguish that comes through in this love. I think we have all felt like this at one point!
