About the Poem
This poem is about a man I long to love, yearn to hold, ache to touch. Still, we share the words "I love you" and each time those three beautiful words spill from his lips all the aching, all the yearning subsides and I'm filled with such a lush peace that the world around me floats away. I love this man, I would walk to the ends of the earth to hold him in my arms and call him mine.
|by Jennifer Benfer|
|Tell me what I'd have to change. Who would I have to be
To slip into your arms; for you to make sweet love to me.
Must I climb the highest cliff; swim along the ocean floor
Crawl over broken glass - would you demand that I do more?
Could you take me as I am, with my issues and my flaws
Pull me to your chest without a hesitation or a pause?
Slide your hungry tongue between my parted lips.
Run your anxious fingers along my quivering hips.
Wrap me in your passion, expose your every need.
Press your steamy lips to mine, every secret freed.
Sprinkle your tears across my cheek, confess every desire
Moan my name, call me yours, and set my soul on fire.
Need me more with every breath that slips into your chest,
Please me nightly, miss me daily, never compare me with the rest.
Grip my wrists; look in my eyes, and say the words I long to hear
Kiss me roughly, and weep my name, forever hold me dear.
Do I ask for wishes that could never quite come true?
Is my sin, my greatest fault, that I can't stop loving you?

It made me ache to read this. Quite moving. I can relate, although my desire is pure lust, no love. Reminds me of someone who drives me crazy and consumes my every thought since I met him five months ago.
There was so much emotion within your words, I could actually feel it.
This poem says everything ive been thinking about with my baby.
I'm Jennifer. I was simply googling my maiden name at work and realized my old poem is still around. I'm so pleased to know that it touched someone's heart. I love the comments. Unfortunately, me and the man in the poem did not live happily ever after. it wasn't for a lack of trying though.
this poem is so deep. it made me think of all the past feelings I had for people I could never get
OMG I LOVE IT. I PROMISED MY MAN A ROMANTIC NIGHT AFTER WE MADE UP FROM ARGUEING THE PREVIOUS DAY, AND I MADE A BUBBLE BATH WITH CANDLES AND ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES (LOL) AND I READ YOUR POEM TO HIM BEFORE THINGS GOT A LITTLE TOO STEAMY IN THE TUB. HA HA! THIS POEM WORKS MIRACLES. TRUST ME ON THAT. GREAT WORK. IM A WRITER MYSELF BY THE WAY. MAYBE SOMETIME I CAN SHOW YOU SOME OF MY WORK.

I love this, I only wonder what it was you feeling or thinking when you wrote it.
your words express how i feel, i'm sending it to the man i love but can't have, maybe he'll understand now how i feel.
This poem is soooo deep, I can't even begin to explain myself. Excellent Work!
This poem reminds me of what I have with my true love. It's excellent!
its beautiful, so beautiful it caused tears
I hesitated to read the poem because I was already moved by your poem's introduction. "I long to love, yearn to hold, ache to touch. "
beautiful! i know exactly how you feel. i loved the whole poem!
This is seriously one of the best poems I have ever read. I can relate to every word, so this poem really touched my heart.
I enjoy reading someone elses poetry besides my own. Sometimes when I start to read someones poem, things just do not rhyme or they rhyme alittle and through you off in the middle. Yours was the total opposite, actually reminding me of my own. Keep the good work up Jennifer
This is a great poem that touched me because it describes exactly how I feel about someone. Very imaginative and prolific!
Erotic! Must be spoken to be truly appreciated.
Soooo BEAUTIFUL..its PERFEFCT!

This explained everything.I miss my boyfriend even more than I already did after reading this. Beautifully written!
Totally awesome. I understand so much what you mean, I reciently divorced and have started falling in love with someone new.
Babe I hear you! I understand every word you have written, you have managed to put my thoughts on paper. Thank you for giving me somethng to hold onto, you do it well.
Wow powerful words that rocked the ground beneath me. What is worse than wanting what you describe is wanting so bad to want, really to want it with the one who wants this with you.
I was left speechless as I read through the poem. Even a tear rolled down my cheek as I sat motionless. You did a stupendous job, and hopefully your writing will endure forever within your heart and those of others.
I thought it was very emotionally appealing
very Good ! I Like IT! I Feel The Same Way About boys sometimes!

I like this poem a lot... Its very honest about what truly is important and passionate in intimacy and love and the fear and doubts thereof.
I was very impressed with the writing of this poem. It captures the true feelings of a deep desire for something in which seems impossible to grasp. The fluency and grammar are well chosen.
You poem expressed my thoughts perfectly to my new found love
This is a wonderful poem. There is a feeling in it that comes across so strong. I love how it is written. Keep doing what you are doing, girl.
This poem was awesome! I love the part that they wanted to know what they had to change and were willing to do so but really just wanted to be excepted for the way that they really were. That shows how much that they really do care!
THIS POEM IN MY OPINION HAS DEEP WONDERFUL MEANING I READ THE REST BUT THIS ONE IS THE BEST FOR ITS MEANING AND ITS APPEAL.
I loved this poem!! It made me think about my first love and how we can never be together again. Even though it was sad, it touched me.
Very well written! I sent it to my boyfriend to read....I loved it!!
Makes you feel the love.
very good. really hits home.
Beautiful. perfectly sums up the strength of emotional longing and desire that can only be expressed by experience when loving someone, almost losing them and hopefully refound and restrengthened.
would that my friend get so much courage in her that she can say this to me. a very beautiful poem.
very good I loved it
This is the most beautiful, romantic poem I have ever read.
Great poem, it expressed my thoughts exactly.
a perfect 10
