Just for Tonight

Come my love
fear not the ailing one
come lie on my shoulders
but just for one more time
let’s cuddle

the waterfalls have now gone dry
‘tis been years passed shy
now as the end approaches
why be wry
lets within each other lie
simply just try

Such another moment
may not come again
then why would you want to ever
our love we did not finally cement

come upon my cheeks
plant a kiss
the last one may be

for a life which just gradually ebbs away
can we recall at all at our free will
come let me embrace you finally
the heavens alone are witness
I loved only thee

why now distance yourself from me
let me die with glee
as you are still besides me

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


to mind a scene I was privy to just recently. A friend of mine is enamored of a particular young lady, she made the mistake of staying with him just one night. Now he can't let go, even though she avoids him when she can and expresses no further interest in him.

He schemes and plots, but to no avail
She avoids his traps, stays off the trail
He buys the best, takes such care
But she won't bring her tools, no repairs

~ Gee.

Honest critique and comments shouldn't hurt.
It's why we are here, to get better at our craft.
