Poetry Train



Hold tight
Push away
Want to leave
Need to stay.

Worship a little
Cherish less
Despise more
Wish to confess.


Hurt me for a minute
Save me for an hour
Hate me for a day
Love me forever.

    I did a lot of searching for that guy…lol. Slaved away. 😀

    Thanks. It took a little work to get words that flowed well together.

  6. T.A.Chase says:

    lmao…thanks, Susan.

    He is rather luscious, isn’t he? 😉

    I’m glad you like the poem as well. I was thinking it would make a good song with the last stanza being the chorus.

  7. Jill says:

    The girls were right this picture is one hell of a butt shot!!

    I think this is one of my favorite from you!! I like the contradiction interchanging in each line!!

  8. Susan Helene Gottfried says:

    You knocked me on the floor with that picture, TA. What a gorgeous man! Whoo!!

    And then, when I tried to get up, you knocked me right back down with the poem. You are so damn good with emotions, I’m jealous.

    I’m also typing from the floor, afraid to move in case you’ve got more waiting for me. Pardon any typos; I can’t see the screen from down here!

  9. T.A.Chase says:

    Thanks, everyone. 🙂 I wrote it and after I posted it, I realized it stopped rhyming at some point. lol.

    That’s why I tend not to rhyme my poems. I lose the flow after a while.

  12. julia says:

    Wow, T.A. – I really love this one. Especially:
    ‘Hurt me for a minute
    Save me for an hour
    Hate me for a day
    Love me forever.’

    Your poetic voice is extraordinary. I love the words and imagery they conjure.

    As for the picture, I think I’ll probably have this man’s behind on my mind all day long. Which is a good thing since I’m writing a sex scene. lol Have a great day!
