From The Heart


This poem was the precursor to HUG – I got permission to post it here from the person to whom it was dedicated. I wrote it after needing a hug – but I didn’t want to make it public before she gave permission. For all those who know what it means to feel secure in the arms of another, just giving and receiving love through a simple hug – this one (and the previous one!) is dedicated to you.

From the Heart

Sitting here alone, trying to pour my heart through my pen,

Spilling blood-red emotions onto pure white paper

But I can’t find the words – the easy rhymes just won’t come.

I can’t bring out all of what I feel and package it with a real

Pretty bow; what I feel is too intense.

There’s no pretense in my love for you. The funny thing is,

I’m not alone – you feel it too.  It’s not in a way that can easily be

pigeonholed.  This isn’t easily put into a box or locked

away inside a single compartment.  You’re heaven sent…

I could stay wrapped in your arms forever till heaven sent for me –

then I’d beg them not to part us, coz eternally separated from you

would be the purest hell.  Pulling out of your arms is always hard

I don’t have to pretend or be strong, don’t have to be stiff –

one smile from you and I melt like butter left on the counter.

I can be me, and that’s more than sex would ever be …

merging of two minds is more intimately erotic

than being intricately wrapped in 69 positions

I wish I could bend my thoughts into another poetic masterpiece

to rock audiences with my literary prowess

but I confess that this confession is my heart’s absolution

My soul’s declaration of my emotional connection…

I love you.

  2. i can be me and that is more than sex ever would be…its great to have that person you feel that comfortable with…and a hug, in the arms the best place to be…no words or verse necessary…smiles.

  4. This is what I love- raw emotion – gets me hooked everytime- this is just so REAL- and I totally know what you talk about- I myself have had those nights – sat up late- trying to express my feelings in words- but somehow never being able to do it justice- the fact that you have someone to share that with here is just awesome- and great that you can lay your heart out in public and say those words ‘i love you’- whoever this written for- I hope they are blown away.

  8. O, I’m really so touched by this…anyone who has loved deeply would be. Sometimes love is so intense and deep there are no expressions worthy enough to express that feeling….alll we can do is lock on to one another and hold very very tight…speechless with heartfelt love. I’m with you all the way here. Beautiful poem, beautiful thoughts…Thank you much for sharing! :))

  14. the most meaningful writings always come from the heart. Is it nice to come up with those perfect lines, layered with hours of puzzles and subtext, sure. Is it nice to compose the perfect rhymes we dream about, absolutely. But when it comes down to it, poetry is about content, and the content of the heart merged mind, is really what it’s all about. I just love the raw truth spilled out here. I think too often, in the age of revision is everything, we miss out on getting to see pieces as powerful and real as the one you’ve painted here. So thanks. Very much appreciated the opportunity to read this.

      I couldn’t have put it better 🙂

      If I was fair skinned I would be blushing! Thank you!
