We should make love tonight…
Not because of you-
Or because of me.

Not cause I need to make love to you-
Or because you need me to do so

But simply cause we should
Make love tonight
This night…

We simply have to make love
Cause of this love that’s all around;
Which the universe can’t contain
Any longer,

Let’s make love!
Tonight we needn’t worry;
About either one of us!

About me or about you
About this or about that!

We needn’t worry for a single thing;
Tonight’s the night we’re free.

I am you
You are a “Me”
A “Me” that I have ever loved
A “You” that I have ever been

Let’s make love-
Or else just remember:
I can surrender very easily
Such a basic thing to do!

If you’re not there to make love,
If loving’s not your thing,
I’d do it all alone…
I won’t ever be alone.

I have a “Me”
I have a “You”
That “You” I need’s
Inside of me.

Don’t’ damage me no more;
I’m ruined with all my soul.
Don’t make me beg for nothing;
Don’t sound like “I don’t know”.

I wanna be with “Me” tonight-
With “You” you’d rather be?
I wanna feel some “You” tonight;
Will you join us, “You” & “Me”?

  1. Love the creative title of the poem. I can hear the frustration of the character and the angst too. I like the way you mesh the you and I and separate them too. ‘Enjoyed reading and the thinking inspired by your poem.

  2. You got all the girls smiling, SiNA. I think tonight there will be noise under the covers and romping amongst pillows. This poem nicely set the stage and puts you in the mood for love. 🙂

    1. Well…if U say so! lol I personally haven’t read much of his work…but I’m SERIOUSLY gonna take that as a compliment and thank you 🙂

  3. Creative with the title. The way you played with the characters was interesting. Wondering how you’re gonna make love on your own, if the other refuses your offer. :S Nice one by the way.


    1. Hey Emmanuel, thanks I really appreciate it. about the “making love alone” bit now worries; cuz here making love is only a figure of speech and doesn’t have much to do with sex 🙂

    1. Shahriar,
      I don’t mind; just be careful because this poem is a bit erotic and I don’t want anyone in the institute to see it if you know what I mean 🙂
