Written off pages of love

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

I can't make you love me
you know I don't want to

It's just that I want you 
just a little piece of your heart

to know that I'm special
not like all the others

all those forgotten chapters
written off pages of love

my heart is a flower
it's opening up

I can't make you love me
you know I don't want to

but my heart is a flower
it's starting to bloom

your touch is like water
I feel myself floating 

can't let myself drown
you're not like the others

forgotten chapters
written off pages of love

I don't want to love you
but your touch is like water

gently wrapping around
holding me up, pulling me down

my love is in bloom
I am your flower

pressed between chapters
written off pages of love.

~

There's something about the rhythm of this reading that feels like the bobbing wavy surface of a big body of water. I can almost feel this narrator trying to get her balance, but every so often wobbling without her sea legs. It conveys the palpable feeling of a person wavering & trying not to throw herself at a guy, but having to fight the temptation to do so. I've never been the type of person who would even ASK a person to love me, let alone BEG! That's why this depiction is so interesting & nicely honed without being dramatic or pathetic (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

So cool how you see things. Thanks very much :)
We yearn to be special....unlike anyone else before....and perhaps after. I get that feeling so much here....Beautifully expressed.....

My pleasure always 🤗
i was smitten with all of this, Ana, but especially the giving nature of the last two stanzas.
The trust the speaker puts in the object of her affection.
nicely done.

Thank you for the kind comment, Jacob.
Such a beautiful write Ana. Fragile, honest and a lot of your audience will be nodding in agreement as they move from line to line.
Forgotten chapters, deleted chapters, crumpled post it notes and shredded footnotes... I've been em all. 😀

Yep, been there. From scribbles to slashes!
Crumpled up and tossed in the basket. :)

"your touch is like water, I feel myself floating" is my favorite couplet.
