Alone With You

Alone With You

A Story by Kathryn Smith

What are you thinking?

I can see your eyes.

And what I'd do

To be alone with you.

Will we ever have the courage?

Will I ever not fake a smile?

How much bolder I'd be

If I were alone with you.

The whole wide world

On the tip of my tongue.

A mad hatters rush

Running in my mind.

I'm frantic.




Don't you realize?

We could get so close

We could touch.

Heart to heart.

Eye to eye.

Hand in hand.

We could have it all.

I know you can feel it too.

So what would you do?

If I were alone with you?

My heart has been ripped.

It's been snipped and torn.

It's been completely burned to ashes.


And now I want to love purely.



So what would I do?

If I were alone with you?

I'd ease your fear.

Kiss you

Touch you

Hold you.

Mold you.

And then.

When you're gone.

I'd miss you.

We could have holidays.

Springs and Summers.

Autumns and Winters.

Sick days and good days.

Months and years.

Now all I have to do

Is find some time.

Alone with you.

Old age had taught me. Make time for the people you love. Lover, family or friend. Biggest regret is not spending time with the people we love. I enjoyed the thoughts and words dear friend. I hope you and family are having a Merry Christmas and have a safe and fun New Year.

When I read the line "how much bolder I'd be if I was alone with you" I thought that the story was going to end differently. Surprise endings are always good. I like it!

Some soft and thought-full answers echo behind our eyes...

A lovely piece Kat. The essence of wistful and longing, and yet with undertones of hope and happiness, which readers can relate to. I know I can.

The musical tendency along with the romantic bent is what makes it a wonderful poem. Brilliant :)
