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.

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

Thank you..
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.

Thank you for commenting
A most filling piece that keeps stabbing at ones feeling within regret and purging, well done, good read.

This is a telling and moving piece of writing.. ... the regrets of 'raw, dirty, drunken sex', the worthless feeling of being 'a receptacle for his seed', yet clinging to hope, the way women do. You capture so well that looking back and desire for something that never was - but might just be.

Love it....It's living with regrets in the morning just to avoid them in the moment. Feeling the pain to feel alive!

Nice write Gee!

Why not just fall in love?
That's the first thought that comes into my mind when I read this poem. But then it makes perfect sense, you're chasing what you once had. Nice poem:)

I was single for 36 years. Roamed 48 states with the U.S Army. Sometime one night stands lasted months. Funny how people who need company. Can. I truly believe a woman decide always. I liked the poem my friend.
