A New Language

A New Language

A Poem by Heromen Selena
"

Come find me :P

"
Love is foreign language to me
The sweet words
Touching of skin
And affectionate glances
Are words that I never had the chance to learn

8th grade was my first lesson
In the language of love
Though I tried my hardest
Two months in
And my teacher quit for my best friend

High school had many opportunities
To "help" me become accustomed
To how a loving relationship worked
But I couldn't get passed
How awkward I felt when another guy touched me

I was an outsider
A mysterious object that
Was sought out because of her innocence
The word "love" now a messed up concept
That I did not want to know

Graduated and off to college
Pictures of the summer I spent together
With you are rooted in my memory
Relishing in the last moments we had together
I realized, that I was devastated you weren't around anymore

I enjoyed being with you
Talking like we were the only ones alive
They way your beautiful eyes shine
Whenever you smiled at me
And our long calls at all hours of the night

Although the distance between us
Is almost a thousand miles
I dream of the day you find me again
So that I can get a chance
To learn the language of your love

Hey guys I know I've been away for a long time, but I'm back! This is for my boy friend to help him find me on this site because we made a bet on it :P If you could give me lots of feed back and constructive criticism that would be awesome! And I would like to go on record here that I do not know why it has 800 views and it's only been up for less than a week. I promise I didn't sell my soul to the writerscafe gods so that it could happen.

As I read your post it's almost as if you are a flower fairy but I see that you might need a little more power behind it- Just an observation. Also don't limit yourself by saying "2" instead of two (That would make it more powerful) Anyway's great [email protected]

Thank you for your feed back and I agree. I'll changed it.
It's good I like how you touched on the awkwardness and the twisted nature it can have when it isn't real, but more important than that you touched on how real love should feel and it leaves a sense of hope. Lovely work.

Love really is a language. And it's unique to every couple out there. I have never thought of it in that way before reading this. So thank you for showing me something new. Great work.

sweet one, Selena! failure in learning this intricate language just means we need to learn it harder by sharing it in the right purpose. 'mysterious object' you're not an object. just saying. keep on writing!
