I Am

I Am

...and when I give I give with wild abandon,
no holds are barred, no watchers are considered.
I lay my head down on the tracks for you my love,
and if you want me all you need to do is take me.
I pray as never ever I have prayed my love,
that I may BE what you have dreamed to have and hold.
I cannot jump my silly god-forsaken shadow,
but if I could I would as I have told
you once before to let you see,
that this is love, for you alone, from me.

This is my favourite so far. Sometimes when you read a poem you take away the memory of a line or a phrase. My head is full of lines that have touched me in some way over the years and I have just added 'I cannot jump my silly god-forsaken shadow' to the collection. Best Jayne
Powerful verse, delivered in A+ style.
You let her know what you want, then you grab it by the balls, the only language they know, i can see your a man for the jungle, do you want a loan of my trusty club it's a bit rusty WARM REGARD'S allan
