Love Actually

The last few years
Like a dream
Honestly, Baby
I love that when you’re with me,
You say yes,
To everything
Remember our first movie
I laughed
You wore your boots
John Wayne, Ha!
We didn’t have a clue
I kissed you
When you opted
To shield my eyes
From everything
That cowboy’s demise
A powerful man,
I’d found,
Was suddenly mine
Our walk in the rain
No umbrella in sight
You made jokes about
White t-shirts
I flashed mine
And taunted you,
A bit
Licked my lips
I saw your eyes
Open wide
Thank you
For backing me up
Against that tree
Our eyes
So serious
Your mind
You told me,
It wasn’t easy taking risks
I silenced you with my kiss
Ran my hands through your hair
Pleaded with you
To take me
Right then
Right there
You said no
Much to consider
Not that night, but another
Do you remember
I’m glad we waited
It helped, you know
Taking it slow
The music you chose
Baby, that’s you
Your skin continues to radiate
Keeps my skin tingling
This life we’re leading
Continues beautifully
Thank you for choosing me

I enjoy Nitin’s poetry, immensely. He provides a raw, thoughtful and powerful image no matter the subject. Check his poem out and say hello. Thank you, Nitin. This was the most fun!
