A Longing to be held

A Longing to be held

A Poem by Gee
"

If only briefly....

"
Dawns light would bring regrets
whys and self loathing,
but no thought of this now.
Raw, dirty, drunken sex,
a feeling of being wanted, needed,
if only as a receptacle for his seed
was reason enough to share his bed.
And if he held her once spent,
be it only briefly and without meaning,
this would remind her of the way her life was once lived..........
before.

Thank you Miles
Many accept refuse if 1 gem might be in the heap... but this type of longing is sad... to be held is innate in us.. that level of intimacy far surpasses what flesh offers. It takes a good person to hold another.

Sorry for the late thank you.
Hope you are all well.
Some people in their quest to find a few crumbs of comfort will resort to taking it where they can find it. It's sad, but it happens. So strong is the need sometimes to have that human contact even if it is fleeting. But I ask myself is it worth it, if the morning brings such regret and self loathing. Well written Gee, the emotional angle comes through well. Me thinks she would be much better off buying a large bar of chocolate (only kidding). Good morning Gee.

Lol, thank you Christine
The need to be held and loved is within all of us
Sometimes - if the right person is near we succumb to it

In the morning (sometimes) we feel regret

Nicely written

You manage to let us in this woman psyche and feel her raw need to be reminded of what she once had and in doing so she is willing to pay the price when the sun comes up.Eloquent and to the point!Well done!

Sad to think that some people would allow themselves to be caught up in such confusion, the need to feel loved and wanted, so true in the way you set the scene that so many people take part in...very captivating I enjoyed reading🌹

Have had to go back in time to find one of your poem's to review.. and find this... and now, what to say.. Can't imagine how a man came to write such words.. whether tis male guilt or whether tis interest in a woman's thinking. Could be a combination. Can only imagine that raw. dirty, drunken sex is meaningless in the cold light of day.. tis a sneeze or a belch.. or yes, perhaps it's a better than nothing few fumbling, stumbling minutes of feeling another person's body. Don't know, don't want to know.. but oh dear Lord, this is so sad. And finely written.

One thing that will really help is replacing elipses ("..." if you didn't know, i sure didnt) with --, it is often used for a pause and helps a reader read it the way YOU would outloud.

Yes, that feeling... completely understood. But It is better to let go than regret... Better to love lost then never love and be loved.

Every human wants to be loved, held, but it is much to their regret when night meets the cold light of day, compounding the loneliness.
