The Illusion of Control

The Illusion of Control

It is so dangerous to love you
Exquisite torture to be near you
Conscious effort is constantly made
To keep from touching you
One kiss, that's all it would take
For my resolve to crumble into dust
One kiss, and the floodgates would open wide
I ache for that inevitable moment
When my world will be turned upside down 
By you again

This poem is very sweet with an even flow, moving u to feel watch the writer is feeling and that is all a real poet wants to be able too do feel. Will be looking for more from u, ur friend in poetry. Infiniti

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
