I was at a loss for words so I borrowed...

These arms of mine, they are lonely
Lonely and feeling blue

These arms of mine are yearning
Yearning from wanting you

And if you would let them hold you
Oh how grateful I will be

These arms of mine are burning,
Burning from wanting to hold you

And if you would let them hold you
Oh how grateful I will be

I need me somebody, somebody to treat me right
I need you arms, your loving arms to hold me tight

I need your tender lips to hold me
To hold me together when I'm around you

Digzer said...

Sad message well put.

Chin up?

extravagantgrace said...


Digzer the chin is up but quavering..maybe some day soon I wont be so lonely

Our Kid said...

Tender lips? Are there any other kind? Oh...

Loved this immensely but surely when you write such poems, you can never be lonely. Your creativity is a great companion.

extravagantgrace said...

Our Kid he he he lips can be more than tender, they can be demanding,hard,urgent...should I carry on?

Creativity does keep me company but at times I need me some skin n a beating heart

Maua said...

gladys said...

These eyes of mine are crying
I know how it feels like when loneliness becomes your constant company
I know all too well how it feels like to be longing
But tommorow's another day
Tommorow another might blow you away
