Can’t have you

Can’t have you

There you are again in his embrace
Such uneasiness when you look at my face
Isn’t it now So obvious
I can’t have you, its not my choice

I still don’t understand why
Loving you makes my heart cry
Its a feeling I can’t do without
Sometimes I want to scream and shout

Tell the world How we perfectly fit
The tingles in my toes each time we meet
My violent heartbeat when in your embrace
One look in your eyes all doubt erase

How sometimes we played together
You fumble on my body and touch me tender
I stroke your hair and we kiss
Your smile afterwards So coated with bliss

I talk about her, you talk about him
Our relationships, both a wonderful dream
You love him, I love her good moral
But being with you feels So natural

So speedily your arms around me
We make the most of little time, careless and carefree
So close to making love each time
He calls, and it suddenly becomes a crime

The fault is clearly mine
I could have told you, How its So fine
You being my girl to have and to hold
He wooed you first, he was more bold

Yes, we have moments not easily forgotten
We ‘ll still make some, if not often
Its a feeling I yet can’t undo
I love you but I can’t have you

  1. Whoa.

    What makes stuff like this so memorable for me is that fact that it could easily be my story – as well as anyone else’s. I think this – in it’s simplicity is absolutely brilliant.

    Just watch for the wrongly capitalized guys. Well done.

  2. Tell me about it….
    So many good things/people we never can have.

    Well Done @brytandre,this is luvli.

    “One look in your eyes all doubt(s) erase”
    “You fumble on(with) my body and touch me tender”

  3. It’s nice.
    But we definitely can’t have all the good things we want.

  4. I can relate to this O°˚˚˚!

  5. “How sometimes we played together
    You fumble on my body and touch me tender
    I stroke your hair and we kiss
    Your smile afterwards So coated with bliss”

    “played” in the first line should have been “play” to agree with the present tense of the rest of the lines.
    Apart from the flaws already noted, I’ve got no more.

    I loved and enjoyed this poem all the way… I liked the rhymes… I liked the story.

  6. Hehehe…. Kpele. I feel ya pain.

  7. Yes, we have moments not easily forgotten
    We ‘ll still make some, if not often
    Its a feeling I yet can’t undo
    I love you but I can’t have you

    hummm such is life.

    well done.
