I Want More

You said we were friends
And then you kissed me
Made me feel things I never thought I’ld feel with you
Forbidden things, I want more.

Now we’re friends…with benefits
You don’t give much of yourself
You only let go when we’re alone and in the dark
But I want more than that

I want more of your love
More of your intimacy
More of your companionship
More of everything that is you
I want more, Chris.
I want more.

    Vanessa…this poem is testament that sometimes less is more. It’s not dense with complexity yet it hits the spot. I however think it tapers off at the last stanza, almost like you’ve given up on the poem like that point and was merely looking for an avenue to express yourself even if not as poetically as the previous stanzas. It’s still makes for a good read nonetheless. Kudos

    Thanks Tim, but I don’t speak that language o. I just know little. Concerning the story, the girl was hooked before she was aware of anything. What can she do but demand for more?
    Thanks again!

    The piece read like something someone who is new to writing poetry would write because the lines are so generic. Hmm.

    Thanks Ufuoma, I understand your view.
