And just for thought...
I thought maybe we could talk or pretend some sort of conversation existed
but the more I looked at you, the less words I wanted to share.
Oh, it's nothing harmful really,
just the way your perfectly lined mouth gazes at me through this stale air,
but this poem is not really about you or the conversation I'm not dying to have.
No, it's about me and the way I can't stop reacting to the outlines on t-shirts
or how enticing the sound of a beer by your pool sounds at any moment of the day.
I guess you are in the mix somewhere, though not very clear where.
I pictured a million moments that have never happened with you
and the closer your reality became, the further I ran.
What do you bring to my table?
I do mean something wicked but never in any fashion to cripple,
just a friendly spat between once lovers and never to be friends.
This poem has very little to do with you, darling,
and more to do with my reactions towards men in general.
I tried to pick out wedding china once.
I thought it should have bright blue skies with a sombrero,
a fiesta in our honor,
but I couldn't control my laughter at the mere silliness of us
because honestly I don't want anything from you other than a good time.
You fidget too much for my taste.
I lack the sensitivity to care.
Put your inuendos back in your pants, sir.
Your stride when you walk near me makes me think I am your prey,
whispering to myself that you keep on walking as my face turns into the sun.
You only make it glow, the thought of your talent between our dirty sheets.
Maybe we could just skip this small talk, the polite lines we share,
and go straight to what we do best,
to what we do better in the dark.
Don't be fooled, lover,
You are just as arrogant as I.
We will butt heads until one of us gives up our pride.
No, this poem has nothing to do with you or the things I fancy of you in the bedroom.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
