A Poem by XO Nonie

I once understood what love felt like
Because he gave me that
A positive depiction of the action
He would spend days at a time
Kisses that could cure anything
Hugs that lasted forever
And smiles so contagious
Grumpy Dwarf would have smiled
 
And now eight months later
I'm sitting next to him in a cab
And a phone call reaches his cell
He starts the conversation
Of course I don't understand cause its a foreign language
But then I notice something
Something I haven't seen in a couple months
And I'm so oblivious to the fact that it simply shocks me
A smile
The smile that I've been wanting for months to see
But thats the sad thing it wasn't caused by me
It was this mystery being on the other end of this call
And for once in my life
I wanted to jump out of my skin
And be whoever it was on the other line

They were a result
Of this smile I had wanted

What honesty. I am moved by your words, you write about those feelings that make one uncomfortable, but you lay it down so real. I enjoy reading your pieces they embrace the raw emotions that so many deny. Your arrangement flows in a perfect rhythm.
Thank you

It's so selfish when we want to be the only reason the person we love smile, but that's how I should want mine.

That really brought tears to my eyes. Wanted to please the one person that you love... and knowing that someone else is doing that job for you. Your writing is awesome and really pulls people in because the experiences are so similar to our everyday lives.

Amazing... I could sense the emotions of an aching heart that loved him so much but couldn't be the cause for his smile. God Bless You for expressing this emotion so well.

I really enjoyed the aching feeling & disappointment in this piece. I surely understand how this can be sometimes...seeing my boyfriend smile & laugh if we're around other people...knowing I wasn't the one making him feel that way. It sucks holding a feeling of such defeat within you, seeing the one you love enjoy life around them, but knowing well enough that you weren't the one to cause those emotions to emerge from them. My heart is still aching...it aches for you, as well...

I enjoyed this piece, but i have one suggestion if you do not mind. Instead of mystery being you could say phantom, or siren. thank you or sharing

Hum, maybe his mother or ex, maybe the smile was because he knew he was no longer with her. Nicely written. Valentine

Yeah maybe, but highly unlikely
"And for once in my life
I wanted to jump out of my skin
And be whoever it was on the other line"
I know exactly the feeling..
a well written poem!
