Treasure Island

.... Chetty

(Seychelles)

Give Me A Reason


I lay in the bed and all I can hear is the silence echo in my head
Maybe I wanted to hold him tight
Maybe I want to kiss him and make love to his skin
But I couldn't try, and maybe now I am a little too late

All I asked for was an answer
But I suppose desire does not spark in his eyes
Or maybe it's me who couldn't give in to lust

Someone from the other side has my heart
It's hard to try again and give a chance
The idea of loving does feel intoxicated or excited
I am just thinking about the pain, and it kills all the desire

Give a reason why you choose to be this way
Give me a reason why I should give my heart away

You tell me you want out
You had enough of all those emotions
Your heart is given to someone else
Mine has been stolen along time ago

I don't want to fight or be bitter
I just want you to give me a reason to love
Give me a reason to make love to you not lust
Let it be written all over the stars we can learn to love again

    Beautiful. Maybe you should look inside you for a reason. I've found answers are rarely found inside others. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
