Just Words?

Posted to Action Poetry

it wasn't just the moment
fatigued by the day
and wrapped in your arms

it wasn't just the smell
cradled in the soft skin
of your neck

it wasn't just the kiss
placed on my lips
slow and full of passion

it wasn't just the feel
of you lying next to me
like the past resurrected

it wasn't just your touch
exploring me
like a lost treasure

it wasn't just your eyes
changing colors
as I remember

I said what I said
because I meant it
I still mean it
I don't know if I will ever
be able to say
I don't mean it

that's all
I've wanted to say
for a long time
