The Photo of You

by Italian Stallion   Nov 4, 2006

Here I am
Sitting all alone
Staring at you
In these photos I have

Your radiant smile
your soft tender lips
The happiness glows
From deep within

I wish it were real
The photo of you
I wish you were near
So I could touch your soft skin

I want to hold you close
And be able to call you my own
Give you a kiss
And say I love you so

You are the light
That shines down on me
When I am sad
And when I'm not

You are my life,
You mean the world
I love you darling
And can't wait
Till the day we meet

    I really enjoy this. I read it first as though they passed away, but then I realized it was "day we meet" not meet again. It has a smooth rhythm and is simple, but sweet and not childish.

    A few minor things:

    I wish it was* real
    The photo of you
    I wish you where* near
    So I could touch your soft skin

    'was' should technically be 'were', for grammatical purposes.
    Was is past tense, which would mean " I wish this photo used to be real, but now it is real", whereas I think you mean "I wish that this photo would be real (now)"

    Similarly, 'where' should be 'were'. Where is the location, were is the subjunctive of be (see above).

    I see your point about the filler words...simple is best. I love this one as well!

    The ending was completely unexpected. I really enjoyed that part. When I was reading it, it seemed as if the person in this poem was talking about someone that they had loved and lost not someone that they were waiting to meet. Well done I've never read a poem like that before very original and I really liked it.
