"I Would Like To Think..." by Eric Wayne Flynn

"I Would Like To Think..."

I would like to think there is a place in your heart

A warm soft spot that has never been touched

Residing behind a wall of ice

I would like to think, I could melt it with a fiery brush of my lips

Too bold, too soon?

Instead of a kiss I'll arrange words to make you swoon

So, rather than melt the wall, you'll throw over a ladder

A permit to climb to the top and look into your secret garden

Watching from this safe distance, I spy

A sight for sore eyes, to never fall again, I swore I

I would like to think, you swore, the same lie

Protesting to the stars and pounding on your pillow

Whispering to Cupid to save his arrows for another fool

I would like to think I could make you believe again

Not in love

Not in lust

In

LIFE

Emotion

Long walks

Long talks

Sunny days by the ocean

A picnic at the park

Catching fireflies after dark...

Notions lost from a broken heart

I would like to think if we were ever to meet again eye to eye

We would create a spark to be shared in our stare

My hands would run through your hair

Down to your flush cheeks

Our wild hearts would

Beat

Beat

Beat

Kindred spirits with no need to speak

I would like to think...I think too much...

Sweet thoughts oft fool me, sweet thoughts oft not be true

Still, I would like to think you would catch me, if I fell in love with you

      Thanks Jodah, I never know if my brain is doing myself any justice, until I get supportive words from you. As always I truly appreciate your visit.
