timmy's poetry - 76. inamoratos

inamoratos. plural, noun

1. a man who loves or is loved; male sweetheart or lover.


it's enough for me to know you
enough to know you care
enough that i can breathe
and see that you are there
i love you but you'll never see
your reflection in my eyes
part of me mourns this
but what i feel for you belies
the need for complete reality
when words nearly suffice


 

Though my body rebels no matter the pills I take
and living seems more chore than pleasure
I'm not ready to leave this life with you

Depression and sadness held at bay
I don’t resent the drugs you give me
Each tiny cup you hand me is love

I rail against what I've suffered and survived
still mourn all the life and times I've lost
But you are love; my rock and salvation

you know how I feel, boy. About one, and two. Parker is right,  each is beautiful, and love surrounds us, if we invite it in. xo

More excellent poems, tim. I could feel the emotion in these words, and see the visuals you painted. Lovely they were.

Also, I referenced this chapter in a Topic Tuesday thread in the writers club.
