Baby, please stay.

Baby, please stay.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Just words.

"



                                      Baby, please stay.

----------------------------
                             You and I

Once we were cigarettes, the gin and juice.
We had long nights and sweet kisses.
Once we talked till dawn.
We knew laughter and great need.
Today.
You and I.
Strangers in bed of ice.
----------------------------------

                      Some whiskey kisses
I remember you.
You never whispered love words.
Only demanding words
Break me, take me.
Make me feel wanted and needed.
Once I told you I loved you.
You gave me some whiskey kisses and you whispered.
Love is for the lucky and we are not the lucky.

Two amazing personality portraits . . . I've known each one & I've been each one. Great details to paint relatable scenes, so true-to-life. I was inspired by you again, getting back to remembering old loves, & posted a new one "Alexander Valley" -- thanks for the inspiration! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You paint a clear picture of before and after the infatuation scenes. "today. You and I, strangers in bed of ice..." that hurts even to imagine. You write vivid images with such a ease.

Great, great deep words. The music and your poem ring so true for me. When you are the other women the hardest words to form is tell her.

What sad love poems! Sad, butI like the writing. It sounds like the voice of experience, which makes the writing strong.

Guess if the shoe fits... how sad then that what you give is turned into mud and mire, John. Guess you could reverse the genders here.. but then perhaps, the emotions would be so very different.

Giving is not always a gift but a sentence given out by one's own jury.

You write tears so clearly, so emotionally.

"Love is for the lucky and we are not lucky." " strenger in the bed of ice." Thought provoking. Love the arrangement of your word and the use of metaphor. Well crafted.
