OpenLinkNight #189 – There’s Nothing You Can Do.


There’s nothing you can do

When she reaches down to take your hand.

She floods every pore of your being

Your sense alight, she rolls over and says,

Do it again and again and again.


There’s nothing you can do

That lessens the thrill

Of knowing she is leaning on you

You like the way her head finds rest

You want her to stay, stay, stay.


There’s nothing you can do

When she whispers your name

Sings the magic only a heart can sing

She encloses you unto herself

You love being hers, hers, hers.


There’s nothing you can do

When she cries in your arms

For pain and hurt from long ago

You want so much to take it away

So you hold her, hold her, hold her.


There’s nothing you can do

When understanding her smile

Her allure melts you in every way

Repeatedly she finds reason to

Give herself to you, you, you.

  1. I love when love can be so deep… there is something so affirmative in that repetition at the end of each stanza.

  2. The second to the last stanza is my favorite. Holding on when you can’t fix a hurt you didn’t cause is true love, indeed. This was a great reminder to me of how much my husband loves me.

    I love the repeating lines at the end of the stanzas. It drives home that love so much. Makes me realize what a keeper I have in my husband.

  4. Splendid love poem, Michael, that reads like a song.

    I love the refrain and positive affirmation of the relationship ~ Sweetly romantic Michael ~

  8. Bev says:

    What a touching and refreshing portrayal of true love. I finished reading with a sigh, thinking…”ah, perfection”!

  9. frankhubeny says:

    Nice description of pair-bonding.

  10. Iris says:

    What an excellent song. From her POV, there’s nothing like knowing you can lean against him and he will not move. My husband is strong, loving, and supportive like this.

  11. Thus is soo wonderfully stirring! Most romantic write, Michael 😀

  12. ladynyo says:

    Oh, gorgeous. Lovely when a man can be so romantic.
