Maybe and What If

Updated on September 6, 2011


You give me the pleasure of feeling your lips

The feelings you give with your finger tips

Puzzled by the feelings you mask

Unable to read and fulfill my task


I want more than what is seen

Unavailable to thee mind obscene

When the time is spent with one another

Not wanting to pressure or smother


But if what I show is the way I feel

And nothing more the a feeling so real

Then maybe it isn’t what it should be

Maybe you aren’t the one for me


All these thoughts travel within

Wearing the mind to be very thin

Only wanting the same thing I give

Wanting that someone with I to live


Maybes and ifs is all I come to see

Only giving and allowing the time to be

Wondering if the time and work I should put

Standing on your side with just one foot

      It is NEVER what I want B., why is that?? I think to myself could it simply be that I am just not READY?? Only my higher source knows what is best for me and understands where I am. Maybe what im longing for in the flesh isn't whats right for me in spirit.... jus my thoughts.... thank you and I am sure of the feelings being mutual with several woman!! thank you my dear B.

      smiles :)

      Poetic, thank you uncertainty is one of my many doubts. having doubt and not sure on which step to take next shows no stability which I hate to lack. but it is what it is....I will give nothing more or nothing less I will have to look into those lyrics....I just wrote some of my own..

      I enjoyed this very much bella. The feelings of uncertainty and doubt you express seem all too familiar. The last line that Cardisa mentions reminds me of the lyrics in the Regina Spektor song 'Fidelity':

      "I never loved nobody fully

      Always one foot on the ground"

      Well done. Thanks for sharing.

      The last line is a puzzle to me...."Standing on your side with just one foot". I love it, it seems like you are trying to make a decision to proceed with this love or how to handle it.

      Writer, Thank you you know when you have that one person you can't read and you just keep question marks everytime you look at them and you cant determine if it is or isn't what they want?? Annoying...lol
