Pretty words and little things

Pretty words and little things

A Poem by Lyn Anderson

singing in the shower


we want what we want

what an unenlightened cliche'

and it would be

if it weren't true

that want is nothing

without you

and yet

want is everything

when it comes

to you ...


the little flecks of silver in your hair

become more noticeable

as days give way to years ...

the lines at the

corners of your eyes

highlight the edges

of your glad to see me smile

and still 

I'd never trade a moment

of this journey

with you ...


Pretty words

have nothing

on the feelings

you make me

believe --

Pretty baby,

make my heart pound

like only you can

remind me again

the difference

between a boy

and a man ...


I close my eyes and I can hear it

the noises you make

when you make those noises

come out of me --

and I want you


more than I did

the first day

I walked

through your door.

Only a nice guy could make you pen this love poem.
Always great when a guy can get your heart pounding, beats jogging any day.
Must admit though, the bloody days are turning to years a bit to quick.

I see what you mean now that you explain it that way. It’s funny how the mind works when composing.. read more
Everything in this poem connects with a deep love and it builds as it moves from start to finish just as love grows stronger, except love doesn't end.

i have so missed your poetry Lyn ...kyour style and the form you use is instantly recognizable .. and your romance and subtle sensuality is put into words that lift and melt my little ol' heart ... in V2 "the little flecks..." my first impression was dandruff ... but i am sure you mean flecks of grey ;) maybe something like ..running my fingers through your hair as streaks of grey highlight our love ..dandruff does work tho! we do have our imperfections and when our commitment to one another deepens .. we accept them all eh!? such a romantic poem ... as always inspires me to work on my own romance ;) love on ya!

i like this

the format makes it work and every word expresses more than the one before

its like a poetic build up of almost raw emotion

great job

you are most welcome..
Good song. The emotion of love has been known to change brain cells and head them into the garden of euphoria. I like your take on the passion of it all.
