As I lay my head down
My thoughts dwell on you
I remember a lot
But I didn’t get to tell you
How special you truly were
Even if I didn’t show it
So here’s to all of you
From this dark chocolate poet
One
You were my first time
Certainly not my last
A lot of controversy went into
What we did in the past
But you opened me up
To a whole new realm
And I explored new waters
With you at the helm
You were a great friend
And a very patient lover
If I had to choose again
I would still choose no other
I sometimes regret not waiting
But I don’t regret you
For you were my first mate
As I sailed the ocean blue
Two
A random chance
But one year in the making
I didn’t fully understand
The chance that I was taking
We didn’t get the chance
To really become close
But it was fun while it lasted
And started with a toast
An unexpected evening
A few hours of bliss
When you finally left
I still thought of your kiss
Three
My best friend
Probably the one for me
But fate kept us from continuing
Our journey into the deep
You’re still down to earth
And can be my confidante
Frankly, that’s all one needs
You have what a man wants
I’m glad that we still have each other
Though we’re not together
I know that seeing your face
Can still brighten the weather
Four
My best kept secret
My own taste of shame
For how things played out
I have only myself to blame
I do not regret you
And I hate how things ended
I admit I was scared
And that I left you offended
You are a special woman
One I’ll never forget
I hope that you are happy
And I wish you all the best
Five
We have had
An interesting past
Flirting throughout school
Never moving fast
Until I came to visit
And decided to make a move
Things went on for months
And we both kept up the groove
We had one last adventure
Before things had to end
I’m glad that when things settled down
We could still be friends
Six
In truth
You’re often on my mind
You’re very far away these days
And we’re up at different times
I miss our simple dinner dates
And cuddling with movies
You’re one of the few women
I really felt knew me
I will admit, you broke my heart
The pieces were hard to recover
My family really liked you
You impressed BOTH my mothers
But, alas, we were teens
We don’t always take heed
Sometimes we go for what we want
Regardless of what we need
Your kiss was truly special
The one I miss the most
In time we will meet again
And I hope we are still close
Seven
A bold one
You caught me off guard
I was still self-conscious
And I found you were still scarred
From a checkered past
Of bad boy exes
For a time I was enamored
By your charms and hexes
But eventually I hurt you
And still try to make amends
I regret my foolish actions
And I’m glad we are still friends
I know you wanted more
And I know I let you go
I thought I wasn’t right for you
But now we’ll never know
I’m glad that you forgive me
And don’t look at me with hate
I wish you and your man the best
I think you two are great
A letter to the women
Who have touched my heart the most
I don’t know if I’ve been in love
But I’ve damn sure come close
Each one of you will be with me
Until I find my wife
Just know that I’ve got love for you
And shall for the rest of my life
