You asked me to write a poem,

what do you wish me to say?

Your face is round and radiant,

your laugh contagious most days.

This joy becomes infectious,

from your touch I cannot stay away.

It was you who drew me to you,

with the kiss on the cheeks,

the embrace of the heart,

and the warm hand held in clasp.

Remember the soft cheek you gave

to be kissed with passion sweet.

Then the other, the peach to eat.

So that our love would in friendship meet,

and so to love our minds greet.

Be fair, be just, this is new to me,

to have attention paid by a beauty queen,

above all a heart a passion serene

this affection can only be received,

accepted as genuine fresh leaves.

Then suddenly as a flash of fire,

the temperature changes overnight

to a fierce passionate desire,

not of pure love, a mixed fight

of clenched fist, and teasing

angry feeling runs true, insight

before another devastating freezing

explosion, as she destroys the red roses,

a gift given with sincere feeling.
