POEMS WITH RUKENNY

 
LET ME LOVE YOU
 
The
first time I kissed you
The
stimulus left you shocked
And
whenever I touched you
It
left your eyes in tears
You
have never felt loved
Not
for once
All
you’ve ever known is pain
Peppered
with resentment
For
something I couldn’t explain
Nor
could I fathom.
 
That
share,
Shut
the door of your heart
Everyone
became a stranger
That
is not welcome into its abode.
I
can only imagine
What
you might have been through
The
height of pain inflicted on you
And
the countless times you’ve pushed love away
But
I’m here to change all of that
If
only you’ll let me into your heart.
 
Let
me love you
Let
me be your gentleman
To
rewrite your pains
And
make you smile again
Let
me show you what it means to be loved
And
you’ll find home in my love.
I
am no player
To
play soccer with your heart
And
dribble you with lies
I
am here to love you for real.
 
Let
me be the man you want
Never
to inflict hurt
I’ll
love you more than life itself
That’s
how special you are
Wouldn’t
you let me in?
I’m
at the door of your heart
Waiting,
Knocking,
And
I won’t stop until you open up
And
let me in.
