I Can't Lose You

I Can't Lose You

A Poem by Jillisa Carrion

what would you do if you were about to let an opportunity pass you by?


Our clothes retching across the bed

We writhe and shutter like serpents on the floor

With nothing to hold but each other

The mastery of such a skill amazes me


We learn and teach

I come to you with a hope of a future

You came to me for a hope of a new life

I can’t lose you �"not for an instant


The plane about to take off�"and all I can do is run towards my future 

If only for this second I could convince you to stay

Stay where you are if only for a moment longer

O’ what should a fool do when all I’ve done is hold back?


If I could relive every second of my being with you only to gain it back ten fold

If only I could tell you that I loved you

Catching a glimpse of you

 “All I can do is run to my future�"that is you

All I have in my hand is my heart and I’m handing it over to you

All I want to do is have ALL of you just to tell you the words I’ve evaded for so long but can’t any longer

I can’t lose you �"I was and am in love with you”
