We will not be sharing a kiss tonight
And no one else’s lips will ever do
Patience is a virtue, not a hindrance
It will be a pleasure waiting for you

Though I’m in love with your body and soul
And dream of a shared passion between us
I’ll wait to hear your body sing my name
There can indeed be innocence in lust

Alas, I cannot dance with you tonight
As we find ourselves many miles apart
But still you dance around my cluttered mind
Quickstep to the beat of my hollow heart

Though I’m in love with your past and present
I shall slowly remove the hurt and hate
Replacing it with a loving future
In accordance with my belief in fate

A pain that only you can imagine
To be apart, now that our love has grown
And arms feeling as empty as my soul
When I can’t cradle your quivering bones

Though I now wonder how I ever coped
In the days, months and years before you came
I feel lucky to have you in my life
So for this absence I cannot complain
For those of you who cant be with the one you love ♥

This totally helps me cope with my situation. I will never be able to be with the one I love. *Sigh* Oh well.
Thank you for this beautiful poem. :)

Worst poem ever. Worse than that awful poem "The Cat in the Hat". It is not poignant or romantic. It is ugly.

Also, today is not Opposite Day. I am an elephant. I hate this poem.

Gosh, trying to sound sarcastic is harder than I thought. Don't believe any of the above! Except the elephant part. That is what I am.

I am sat here thinking that perhaps it is Opposite Day. If you say that it's not Opposite Day when it is Opposite Day then that means it is Opposite Day. But how would I ever know lol That hurts my brain a bit.

thanks for the comments anyway :D
