About the Poem

Dreaming that the person you long for feels the same way about you.

If Only I Knew

It is you I think of
My fingertips touching your lips
Moving slowly to your cheeks
And lightly over closed eyes

A breath sucked in
And slowly exhaled
Is my touch painful?
My fingers keep moving

I can feel your breath on my face
As you move closer
My heart beats faster

Waiting for your lips to touch mine
I wet my lips
I’m waiting

Your lips touch mine gently
Too gently
Hearts beat faster

I lean forward
Strong hands on my back
Bring me closer
Not close enough

Mouths open wider
Hands move to my neck and up
To cup my head
Fingers snake through my hair

You hold on tighter
Your grasp pulls me forward
My hair is loose now
Twisted through your fingers

Thigh touches thigh
Your hard chest is strained against me
Hands slowly fall away
I open my eyes

Looking into yours I see myself
I hope you’re thinking what I am
I wish I knew
If only I knew

Ally, I think you should think bigger on your poems because that was excellent. I felt like that at one time; and I wish I could have found the words to express my feelings at that time, or found your poem much sooner than know! Keep writing. your good, and I wish you well.
man i feel you, i really would want to know what this person thinks of me, and if he thinks to be with me, he says he does but i really dont know if its true, really good poem you got it.
All I can say is WOW!
I have to say that you did a wonderful job on this poem. Too many times I have been in a situation that you have described. I think that everyone has had a moment where they wanted to know, but didn't. Thank you for speaking the truth!
