-J.L.S.

I have never

Been

One to

Hold back my

Kisses

When

Something

Gets on my

Nerves

—Enough

To hold in

Nothing,

Depending

On who I

Am talking

To at the

Time

Expelled

Feelings—

Just

As good

As when you

Purge all

The worst

Parts to fall

Out of

Your body!

Original to

Find a dream

And hold

Onto some

Part of a

Life when

You did

Not think

You had

Anything

Of the sort

Before.

Find the one

Who is right

For you.

I had been

Desperately

Searching

While crawling

On my knees.

One so eager

To please is

Too good to

Be true for

Someone like me!

You can find

Her standing

In her own

Pit of desperation.

You did not

Even take the

Time to have

Another look

At least, not

Until you were

Jilted in favor

Of men who

Had a more

Physical presence.

But love will

Foreign land.
