Am I wrong?


  • JonTalbain
  • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?

Am I wrong?

Tell me if I am wrong for this?
Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you?
Is it so wrong to want you when i am really laying next to my wife
To have your love, and for me to trying to hold on to the best thing I've ever known and I've ever had

Am I wrong to want the gentleness of your kisses and embraces, while in the back of my mind, i've got two little ones, a boy and girl, depending on me to be there for them
Is it such a damned disgrace, that when I lay with her, its your face i really see
Am I so fucked up, that I have to lie to them, so that I can see you tonight and tomorrow night
Why do I hunger for you so much, each and every night and day
when I have someone else that needs me just as much as you do
How can this be me, in this situation, like this?

Why do i feel, that in the midnight hour, its your flesh I'd rather stroke
and it is you, I want to shower in a bath of roses and golden trinkets and diamonds galore and not her.
I can't understand why I do this, but I feel such a primal hunger, such a powerful need for you.
Who could say there is no future in loving me as I love you?
This is wrong what I do, but I don't care
Because I've fallen so deeply in love with you?

When I am at your place, I wish I didn't have to leave
But if I don't, my children will be worried that I am there when they wake
And my wife will feel that I am with another,
And she knows it, even though I hide it well from her
she can see it when we make love. She can see it every day and yet she stays...

And she knew that it was you I loved all along...

Tell me, baby, Am I wrong for loving you?

wow. I hope sencerely that this is not a real situation in your life. If so I suggest honesty to the woman who has given her mind body and soul to you . Wonderful work though . I love the emotion you put in . I could visualize you lying there thinking of her while laying beside your wife. I know the hunger . I know the need for someone new and beyond the thresh hold of your palace. I also know the pain of the loss when one loses what they think they no longer want . The passion for what already belongs to you will be far greater than the passion you have for this stranger when what you are secure with owning is no longer there. great work .

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
