Kiss Your Wounds

Kiss Your Wounds

A Poem by recklessfunk
"

Not your average love poem.

"
I'll kiss your wounds
They look painful from where I'm standing
But don't worry, they'll heal with time and care.
I will walk you home on rainy days
After all, that's what friends do.
I will let you cut in front of me during lunch
I will help you with your homework
Even if we stay up till 2 A.M.
When you change your MySpace status
To "depressed" or "angry" or "upset"
I will ask you what is wrong.
I will let you win that videogame
That way I can challenge you to a rematch
I will pretend that I can't play guitar
Just so you can teach me how
I will recite every corny joke in the world
Because I only want to see you laugh
When I sleep over your house
I will turn off the lights
And listen to your breathing
Just because it's the one thing
I want to hear.

"When I sleep over your house" what do you mean by that? I thought it was really good, I would kill just to send that poem to my boyfriend, lolz, but I'm not going to, I don't like to do a copy thing, my poems, I wrote from feelings. Your poem seems kind of like that to.

It was really good though I liked it
keep it up hon


Sincerely,
Dream
