I’m yearning for some old school love.
That sweet love that kept you up on the phone all night.
Not thinking of short verses for his Twitter page
but long, drawn out sighs and movement from lips to thighs
sweet nothings that fill your ear and make you want to disappear
into the abyss of his love
into the phone for a long, sweet kiss and a tight hug
not looking at pictures of his body on Facebook or pictures that some other body took
but cuddling up next to his chest on the couch
not texting each other but hand in hand, mouth to mouth
can’t wait to wrap up inside of that warm oven kind of love
that old school love when he couldn’t wait to get off from work
to take you for a walk around the park
to “write your name up in the sky”
and tell you ” you’re the reason why”
wanting to be his “lover girl” and praying he’d take you all around the world
or even for a push on the swing
and maybe one day a shiny diamond ring
both “wishing on a star” that no one would see you in the back seat of that car
vowing to love each other “forever” as you sunk deeper into the leather
i want THAT old school love
i want his hand to slowly caress my back
not the touch screen of his phone
i want us to feel like we’re all alone
not with a zillion other friends chatting, messaging and interrupting
when he holds my face in his hands and says that this was where he wants to be
the only tweeting that I want to hear
is sweet nothings being whispered in my ear
or music softly playing while he lay near
and though i know things are different in this time and age
and people and relationships are not much more than comments thrown all around the page
I want that old school love back
I know you’re out there and until you find your way through
I’ll be “saving all my love for you”.

“Another bad creation” 🙂 this poem bought a tear to my eyes,something that has been so heavy on my heart has been put into perfect words. So many of us simply “miss” that ole school love….bring it back :):)
Beautiful and authentic! I pray that you do find that kinda love because he’s there waiting for you.
I hear you, girl~! What ever happened to courting? I say it’s still out there, cause when real love comes by, he feels the same and wants to be with you in the same way, and feels just as frustrated…
or am I projecting?:)
You have aptly described the love I have found. I gotta an ole skool love with a sho’ nuff ole head. Thanks for penning my passion on the page!
Wow! Did you write that? That was amazing and rings true in my heart. I want the old time love too…
