Misinterpret Me

Misinterpret Me

Misinterpret me today
I don't believe I'd like to stay
For if I do...there might be
A glowing warmth inside of me

And loneliness may soon subside
If I've got you here by my side
And even worse, my heart may swell
If tender thoughts of love we tell

The sun may grace the sky once more
And wings take me to Heaven's door
Dreams may come back home to stay
If I don't go upon my way

I may kiss your tender lips
Or hold your lovely finger tips
So, misinterpret me today
I really don't think...I want to stay.

Hi Matthew...The title drew me in right away....Then the message sealed my first impression of what I was about to read....romantic and yet also hinting of fears laced with hope....and haven't we all been there?ย  Lolย  I love it!ย  Never doubt your poetic abilities...I am so glad you came to Cosmo.ย  You are appreciated for your contributions in talent.ย  xo ;)

Cherie! Thank you for the sweet words. You're going to make me believe I'm a poet yet.ย

Thanks my good friend,ย

Hey Leeza!ย 
Thank you, my wonderful friend!ย 
(I don't know about 'worth the read', but it does contain some words, so it can be read, if you're a glutton for punishment). LOL.ย 
Good hearing from you!ย

I need more hours in the day to read more of the poems on this site..but. I am so glad I found this one..Matthew, your words here are more than just words, they are the gateway through to your gentle,longing soul..You write from a special place where words connect so deeply with ย readers, that they share the same doubt,fear,longing and hope that ย you do...Pinned to remind me that if a deceased yak can product this level of beauty then there is hope for all of us thankfully! Nice work Sir! Lodigiana x

Loki,ย 
I missed this response, and I'm so sowwy(that's my Elmer Fudd version of sorry).ย 
You ALWAYS have such kind words for me, and I sooooo appreciate it.ย 
You are so great!ย 
And yes, deceased yaks often edge me out in poetry competitions, but I have come really close to beating out some violently ill goats(I only lost by 62 votes...on a panel of 4 people...so that's pretty good, right?).ย 

You are a really sweet person.ย 

Thanks,ย 

Matthew.ย
