Luncheon


Today was awkward
to say the least.
It was all I could do
So our eyes wouldn't meet.
What an ill fated mission
To try to achieve.
And inevitably
that honey
and ivy hue meet;
while I'm bathing
and sinking
in syrup
for him,
he's getting more tangled up
with me.
He's disarmingly charming
and his eyes move like fireflies;
Burning slow
with calculation
across a hot
night sky.
It makes me wonder
why I hadn't
loved him already.

I hope I heard right
every word he didn't say.
I think he and I have always
been that way.
But it's impossible to know
what he's trying to disclose
when he stares at my tits,
flexes his lip,
when he makes his eyes melt
like
amber drips.
But I just think he gets lost in my greenery.
I think he's held hostage by my scenery
and it's obvious he isn't
so coy
after all.
He wants me
with his
whole
heart.
It makes me wonder how its possible
I didn't love him already.

If I'm right I swear
I'll never understand.
How he'd rather stay devout to
his boring Maryanne.
She sounds sweetly
unappreciative
Of what makes him
him.
She's clearly just a little too prudish and
prim.
It's hard to believe
she owns clothing
not ripped.
I'd make it good habit
to be under
his fingertips.
And here she wasted
him for
those years that I wanted.
I don't begrudge her
but I wish
he'd give up on it.
It makes me wonder when
he'll love me already.

I hope I heard right every word
he didn't say.

    What a voyeuristic glimpse, to such an intimately expressed write. I applause it with high rating! You have quite a unique way of voicing what other's can certainly relate to. Well crafted....PEACE (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
