Romantic Friends

Updated on January 24, 2011

Holding of hands

The sound of laughter

No talk of meaning

Or what comes after

Enjoying a touch

A tender embrace

The feel of your lips

Upon my face

Talking like friends

Sharing some time

Needing no reasons

Without any rhyme

Saying goodnight

A kiss at the door

No innocence lost

No talk of more

We’re two of a kind

Too gentle a breed

A break from the playground is

Just what we need

      Love your poem. No conquest, broken promises, expectation, disappointment . . . Friends! Should never be taken lightly.

      Aha, this is great!! A love that's a friend, asking for nothing more than holding hands and a kiss at the door. Now that's what i call a true friend.

      Cheers

      Thanks for visiting mylife! I'm so glad you liked it, it seems from the response that everyone has someone that was a friend and the best times were when things were unencumbered and just taken lightly. Makes me wonder if its possible to stay this way. Love and Peace.

      Ruby, nice to see you again, it is great! Is it possible to hold it there suspended in time or will life carry it along and make it complex and worrisome like everything else? Who's to know? Love and Peace.

      Thank you Saddlerider, of course you are playing with me and the rest of the gang in the playground of life! I'm glad you felt it, I think we all are - same rules of engagement, we all just are in different stages, different circles and sometimes they intertwine...its what makes it all so interesting. I just happen to be sitting with my friend under a tree right now watching some butterflies and enjoying some time out. Love and Peace to you. thanks for the ratings and I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
