Am I Staring? - Poem by Vickey Alexander

am I still staring?
sorry but
I cannot help it
I find you


somehow deeper than that
the way I stare at you
feels like a memory of your skin
smooth dark chocolate
like sin
and your smile
even more beautiful than
your sensual grin

I can imagine
what its like
to be on the
receiving end
of your smile
your gaze

and by the way
you have beautiful eyes


did you know that
you lips
sometimes curl on 1 side


I find myself wondering what
its like to know
what all of your facial expressions mean


before I fall asleep
I daydream
your face is there
watching my hand play
with my pubic hair

your eyes, your sexy grin
and those lips
did I mention your butt
your thighs
and those blackman hips
and just imagining
what they can do
can make a girl
lose her grip

in reality

because after all

you don't even know me

i tried to talk to you once
I'm kinda shy


how do you even tell a man
you've been thinking of him
ever since your first view of his face
am I supposed to say
can you spend a night
or three
at my place
I want to understand your body
your soul
and that
sexy ass grin

how does a conversation like this even begin
this package doesn't even come close to a perfect 10, cause I watch you watch the girls as they come in and your eyes light up when they are pretty and thin
and no need to start something which is already at the end

like this poem

never mind
I'll just continue to stare
think of you
as my hand moves past
my pubic hair
