I Ask.....
Author: Terrie*


as I sit here on the front porch
glimpsing at every raindrop that falls
and pours down from the sky

I make love to every single drop
that falls and splashes upon me

I asked myself deep down in my heart

if you had no sex to offer me
could I still love you as much as I do?
would I still want you too?

I didn't hesitate..
I said yes I do...

the love in my heart is so real
something I feel in my gut
and it isn't lust
if it was I'm sure I would know
and I would tell you so

with so much meaning to my heart
I thought for a moment
how about you?

if I was like a raindrop
seeking shelter in your arms
would you take me in
and let me melt into your heart?

how do you feel towards me
do i truly satisfy...

your heart???
with just the touch
of my heart???

------- Author's Notes -------

i found out the answer was yes...
and that means more than words could ever say...
