Before I Beg You


Before I Beg You

Tonight the trees hear me whisper,

For even the wind has ears,

I want to pull you close to me,

And wipe away your tears,

You fill my eyes with your beauty,

Embers have begun to burn,

I don’t want to shirk my duty,

And you have so much to learn,

I vowed to protect your innocence,

And I can’t go back on my vow,

The words I pledged were easy to say,

But I’m standing with furrowed brow,

Your lips are ripe, so cherry ripe,

I’m tempted to taste them now,

But rather than talk about how you look,

I’ll practice my vows anew,

But seeing you is killing me,

Knowing something I’d rather do,

Touching is better than seeing,

I want to touch more of you,

Though fires are raging deep within,

My weakness I must control,

You’re tempting me by being here,

I’m in danger of losing my soul,

Your warmth weakened my resolve to fight,

You have to leave me soon,

The moon is growing big and bright,

To your charms I’m not immune,

I’m torn between loving you,

And doing what I know is right,

Please go before I beg you to love me,

Tonight

    that’s super romantic and sweet.
    masterfully done.

    1. Fun to write, and I’m glad you had fun reading it. New love poem today, Of Course, I Will, was also fun to write.
      Thanks, Ji, for stopping by once again.

    1. Isn’t life just special sometimes? Just when I get it all planned out, life spins off in another direction. And yes, I’ve had my heart broken a few times. Thanks for sharing my pain.
