The Wrong One

Just bear with me…

I know that things
Didn’t start smoothly.

Maybe I came on
Too strong.

Maybe I was overwhelmed,
Overwhelmed by the
Power and
Beauty and
Sensuality of you,

Of course,
My mistake.

I just got
Caught up
In a flood of emotion…

Fantasizing that maybe
Just this time,

In this moment,

I finally found

In you.

I sense that
Are hesitant,

Understandably uncertain.

So let’s pause…

And take a breath.

There’s no rush.

Nothing is pushing us
To the unknown;
To the unacceptable.

All I ask is that
You invest just a moment,

In the concept

Of a



A me.

There’s too much
At risk,

Expediency is
A curse.

Just listen
To my whisper
In your ear,

Just feel
The beat of my heart,
Flesh to flesh,

Your bare chest,
To my bare chest.

I’m moving
Too fast for you…

Maybe my body
Shouts to blend
With yours
Too quickly…

Maybe I long
To taste you
And urgently
With abandon…

Maybe I’m the wrong one
For you.

But what if…

But what if not?

    1. That’s so kind of you Manessah! I’m honored and humbled by your comments. Guess I just write what comes to mind, neither polished nor professional. But, it’s the “voice” that’s foisted itself upon me…and I’m stuck with it. 🙂

      As always, I so much appreciate you taking the time to read my work!
