The Secret Meeting

By Angel Lai



I waited anxiously for his arrival

And watched the wide doors of his SUV pass by my windows

From a distance, watching him walk up the drive way was like watching a four year old kill ants

He gave the door a gentle shut, closing it on people’s noses

We’re finally alone, no yelling voices, no raised eyebrows, and no judgmental thoughts

Just us, two open hearts



All the nonsense chatter didn’t matter

It was what two connected people did on a free day away from the public

None of his moves were rehearsed but acted out by instinct

Our time together was quickly shortened from hours to minutes

Turning to the direction of a selection of shoes, I followed his path

My feet was being tickled by rough sand like tiles



Before goodbyes are exchanged,

All my feelings changed

My arms are opened wide

I inhaled the scent of a confident strong man, who goes by the name of Batman



In your arms is where I want to stay

I’ll never let go if I may

For once I didn’t care who saw

Even if we were caught I would not withdraw



While we stood, motionless, he couldn’t see but I closed my eyes

And the thoughts came flooding in

His legs wrapped around mine and mine around his

I drove my fingers through his thick black hair when he came closer

Remembered everything he said to make me laugh and smile

Then with a blink I came back



My face was scratched by the zipper of his jacket but I still held on to his waist

I watched painfully as his vehicle faded down the road
