Him... I miss

I originally wrote this one back in high school... found it flipping threw some old stuff... I remember finding it for the first time when I moved to Harlem in 2005 and I remember changing a couple things in relation to a trip I had just been on.

You know its that time of season when people go on trips, have those one night stands on the trips, most times never to speak to that luscious man ever again. Just the fun of being young and carefree (and safe of course) hits you and you want to feel desired by the opposite sex so you endulge, knowing that what happens on that cruise or that island stays on that cruise or that island. Well have you ever been in a situation where you thought about that person after. Knowing that it was against the rules but you just couldn't help yourself. Wanting to see that person again, missing them as if your connection had been more than just sex. Well this poem touches on that a bit. I hope you feel me!

Him, I miss

A tear roles down my cheek

As I look into the sky

Our meeting was too quick

We said hi and then bye

I wish he were here

To show tender-loving care

My arms are held wide open

But there’s no one there

I wish I could forget him

But I keep seeing his smile

Nonchalant about things

Had his own unique style

I miss him so much

The time spent was too short

I wish I could fly like an eagle

Then into the sky I would soar

Right on the ledge of his window

To receive a hug and a kiss

I don’t know that much about him

But the little I know I miss

I wish clocks could be turned back

Instead I reminisce the time we shared

The memories are too great

Too much for me to bear

Just one more day with him

To let him know how I feel

To discuss serious issues

Knowing my love for him is real

The clouds begin to thicken

And tears are tumbling down

I distinctly hear his voice

Exact pitch and sound

I can’t bear it any longer

We’re too far apart

New York and St. Maarten

Where can a relationship start

I know if I press on

We’ll be together one day

My cruise landed on your aisle for a reason

And for that reunion I pray.

Hmm - this is good - you should do this at an open mic.

You know...I totally understand how you feel on this one.

I remember those trips and the one night stands. Like if I were to take a trip to Vegas back in the day there's nothing I wouldn't get into because I was young, naive, and carefree. Also what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I miss those days. This poem is hot girl! Good one and I love it.

@MP - I'm gon get you...lol

nah for real... some of the stanzas are from HS... wrote it after I went to track camp for the summer at Villanova University... fell in utter lust with one of the other dudes in the camp.. then when I found it in 2005 I had just come off my first cruise... and had a little boo on the boat for that week so I changed a couple stanzas to reflect that...

Great poem!! Most people can relate to a long-distance love that can probably never be. :-)

JayBee May 7, 2008 at 3:39 AM

but, that's just it, eb. you breaking the rules. you ain't 'posed to catch feelings on the strength of a one time encounter. i can, however, see how it could happen even if you had no intention of it happening.
