Lyric Fire: Wished You Could Have Written It On My Wall

what we have is forbidden

so it stays hidden

behind the screen

out of view

so long ago

before our network was social

we danced a sensual ballet

legs, arms and tongues intertwined and twisted into love shapes

one act plays transformed into 10 hour documentaries

one phone call led to another and another

emails turned into novellas

i wish you could have posted on my page

wrote on my wall

in secret code

how you felt after we

made love that first time

played the numbers game

made others guess which position

we were remembering

but we bonded before the web wave

kissed before we had friend’s lists

i was following you well before twitter

our relationship was oh so complicated

the status would have changed hourly

one moment so in love

the next day disconnected

we never married

but our hearts were always engaged

wish you could have posted on my page

or written your love on my wall

because when it ended i could have deleted it

but you are now imprinted in my mind

and on my heart

i tried to log out

shut down

but my heart’s computer crashed

i couldn’t reboot our love

my hard drive is malfunctioned

    Amazingly beautiful and sensitive poem, love your wordplay and agree with your lovely sentiments. If only, love was such an easy game to play!!!

  4. Hi Sulekha! Your comments are so appreciated! Love is the hardest thing we do and it should be the easiest!

  5. Jim says:

    Damn you are so good.. I am always enthralled by your words. The pain we all have felt put into a modern context. New and inventive and yet so old!!!
    Makes me wish I was a virus lol!!!

  6. Wow! LOL! Thanks Jim. Your compliments always make me want to write better. I need to live up to your kind words. A virus? Hmmm. A computer virus right? 😉

  7. Tameka,
    Love loved the play on words….
    Great poem

  8. Thanks Jessica! Your compliments are so kind.

  9. Hi Tameka –
    Come on now. Stop all this over view business and tell me all the details here, haha. Although people do not always stay together, love does stay within us forever. Nicely done. 🙂

  10. Okay Charlie, perhaps because of you I will do a second part to this one. It may get steamy though. Ready? 😉

  11. Oh my such meaning, such sensual juices flowing from your fingers. Bravo….

  12. Jen your words arouse my face into a smile. Thanks girl!

  13. Roy Durham says:

  14. Roy, thanks so much. Honored to receive such kind words from a poet as yourself. 🙂

  15. expressing love before the wave of the web world was different, true very true. your story reflected it well. love has its own feasible ways of being represented in real and virtual world. we love to keep it updated.

    I can actually hear the voice reading on this. I love the “one act play turned to documentaries” and the feeling it invokes. Outstanding work!

  17. Sancheeta! Yes, the technology age has advanced and exposed love relations in a lot of ways, but sometimes I miss the old school ways of declaring affection. I’m glad you liked this piece and I look forward to reading your work as well. Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Ioannis, hello dear writer! Thanks so much for your comments. I’m honored as your writing is inspiring. 🙂

    Bellissima Tameka :). I wouldn’t want to fall so much for it, but my dad says if I don’t get myself a date in the next months, I’ll be married to my virtual world.
    I wished he just wrote on my wall too, then I could just shut my computer down and walk away.But he left an indelible mark in my heart. It’ll be there forever.
    loved it 😉

  20. JIm Brandano says:

    yes a computer virus lolol

  21. Aww, Melissa. I so understand. It’s okay to take some quiet time before getting back out there. Your dad just wants to see you happy, but there is something to be said for quiet reflection. We are better people when we love deeply. It works those heart muscles and gets them strong for when the right person comes along. But muscles also need time to heal when they are overworked. 😉

  22. LOL@ Jim. 🙂
