About the Poem
This poem was written about a guy who came into my life just after I broke up with my first love. Because we started out as friends, my feelings for him developed slowly. So slowly that I didn't realize they were so strong until about a year after we met. We kissed once while were hanging out and then one day I found myself sitting in class and thinking about him. As my thoughts progressed I began to resent him for bringing out feelings in me that I promised myself I wouldn't allow to happen for a long time. Then, I realized he did me favor by allowing me to have feelings again. And by end of the class I had written this poem.
How Dare You
|by LaTiefa Alston|
|How dare you walk into my life at the eleventh hour,
Causing confusion in my world and seizing the power
That I possess over the feelings I choose to have for a man,
You weakened my wall by holding my hand;
By being the man that I miss
And showing you care in just one kiss.
How dare you walk into my life through the back door and unannounced;
Leaving me dreaming of every moment
we've spent together and thinking of every ounce
Of desire I feel to have our souls connect in such passion that it's surreal;
To feel your heart pounding against my chest,
To be entangled in each other's arms,
My lips kissing your neck as your tongue explores my breasts;
Back and forth, up and down,
On the floor, in the shower,
'Til my head rests on your chest at the morning glory hour.
How dare you walk into my life and expose these thoughts that
I have buried for so long,
That I have been able to suppress
So that I may go on;
You've put me in a spot from which I cannot move,
You've made me vulnerable again,
'Cause you're so damn smooth.
How dare you do this to me,
But the next time you do,
I'll still let you in . . .
If you keep doin' what you do.

This was so good, enjoyed the words as they spoke out to me.
I really liked this poem it did touch me because I am having the same problem with this guy i just met. I say I don't like him but deep inside i now i do
All I can say is, WOW! I forwarded this poem the moment I read it. It's deep and beautiful!
I love it. I can relate. The author sounds like a girl like me. Many options, but vulnerable to one who is worthy.
your poem was off the chain and i like the vibe it was just right for me keep it real and keep writting
I LOVE THE POEM,IT WAS REAL AND THIS IS HOW I ALSO FEEL AT THIS TIME. I GIVE THIS POEM FIVE BIG STARS. KEEP WRITING YOU HAVE TALENT.
Whoa, I printed your poeom, laminated it and hung on my bedroom wall. Beautiful just beautiful
wow,thats all i can say about this poem,its fantastic!i have just started a new relationship,we have been together for only two months now,but the way you are feeling is exactly the way i was feeling when i met my amazing boyfriend. i had a bad relationship before as my ex was just interested in sex, i was too blind to see that as it was my first love, when he broke up with me i was devistated and thought i would never find anyone again,i told myself i would never fall in love again as love just causes pain,well i was wrong,when my new boyfriend and i met, i had this sensation that i had never felt before,i knew that when i saw him sitting on the table i wanted him to be mine,a year later we were together (that happend by chance)and again the way you describe your feelings in this poem is exactly the way i felt, well done on such an amazing poem, i hope you go far with your poety cause you are fantastic!GOOD LUCK :-)
Wow this poem is really good! i love how you present it and then wrap it up! This is a great poem!
this is a great poem! you have real talent. may God bless you always
Wonderful poem! Wow---this is exactly how I feel!
I could identify/from both a male or female perspective. I think both genders can get into a love rut. isn't it funny/how perfect we become when we are alone. the love found here surely is deep. cerebral and erotic. thanks, i vote AA+

This poem is truthful, bold and exactly my thoughts.
MY FIANCE AND I WERE BECOMING ROUTINE WITH EACH OTHER AND BOTH CAME HOME THE SAME DAY WITH YOUR POEM.I PUT IT IN THE BED ON HIS PILLOW.HE PUT HIS IN THE BATHROOM AN MY COUNTER NEXT TO 2 DOZEN WHIT E ROSES WE ELOPED THE NEXT DAY
Now, I dig this type of material! I found it to be sensual and very inviting.
very, very nice!
this poem was so beautiful, ans so true. I'm not going to say "words cannot start to convey this beauty of this poem blahdy blahdy blah..." because it is simple a wonderful blend of a sting of hatred for someone brave enough to try and love you and succeding. a man who just shows up, knows you, and is enraptured by you. You love it, but you are puzzled by it. it's a wonderful feelings, if not an irresistable one.
LaTiefa, Hey.I just got done reading your poem, it was great. It felt like Deja Vu for me, I had the exact same thing happen with my current boyfriend.he was my best friend for almost 2 years, until i realized I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life.Your poem said it all.
This is a beautiful poem, and it was able to express all of the feelings that i now have for my guy. The power of this poem surpasses all words that i could use to express my feelings. Thank you for sharing this beauty with the world..you are a true artist of the heart!

Its so funny its like telling my story, me and my boyfriend, i let the "i love you" out 11:00 pm as i can remember and by that momment he kissed me and i was like lost in time.. "You've made me vulnerable again" I dedicate it to my sweetheart Rommel =)
As someone who has been there,I commend you. This poem has a syntax that I often only see when reading Maya's(Angelou) poetry. Beutifully done, and well written.
