I Didn’t Even Suck In My Stomach

I saw you on the street
In passing, We embraced
“Hi Sweetheart”…
You introduced me to your “friend”
Beautiful like a tiny painting
With a limp dishrag handshake.

I greeted you full, squarely on
With my usual over-the-top energy
“So great to see you; and meet you”
I didn’t even suck in my stomach
I don’t need your approval,
Or heartache.

Back It Up

Just know that I want you back
Hurry before I slip through the cracks
I don’t know where I’m going
I can’t stand this plateauing
I don’t want to hear you
I just want to feel you
I don’t care what you say
Except you’re coming my way
Send chills down my spine
Skin on skin smoothly divine
Rumbling through my soul
Present with no goal
I so deserve this
Weightless bliss
All my boxes checked
Until we feel perfect

Did I say I want you back?
I meant I want you on your back.

Author’s Note: It’s hump day.

Unconvinced

He once told me
Your outside is simply an exquisite wrapping of the gift within
His way with words to any ear pleasing
I was immediately attracted to your love of life
About our first meeting, he said
Your energy is pure and good
So he read
I love your soul
He insisted he did not give away his love easily
Yet, words of affection he never minced
Still I have him call me once a week to video chat
In case I need further convinced.

Musings, Moonlight and Martinis

I.

“Where are you bb?” Your very first words.

At the end of the night your angel had flown away like a bird.

“I’m here why did you go… without saying good bye?”

Drunk on martinis and moonlight, I didn’t recall why!

You’d already fallen for me.

And, for you, I fell from the sky.

II.

You said we’ll make music together, write poems line by line.

You’ll cook for me, while I pour the wine.

How did you know the way to my heart in such a short time?

We planned to party all night and stare at the same moon.

And when you surprised me with a yacht, how could I not swoon?

I am reeling and feeling something anew.

You cannot die from an overdose of satisfaction, can you?

III.

More (a)musings coming soon.
