Nothing More

I think of you, chastise myself, 

And press your name away

Ignoring, stubbornly, the fact, 

You’re present every day

 

I don’t ask why I cannot help 

But seek your commentary

On every task, or smile of mine- 

A wish I cannot bury

 

I say, embarrassed at myself, 

That this affair ends now. 

This fantasy, this made-up game, 

I cannot keep allowing

What you made me w...

Wonderings

I liked the way he looked at me

Like I was the only thing he could see

or that was worth looking at. 

 

I liked the smile he made for me

A tailored face, specifically 

to tell me what he couldn't say. 

 

I liked the things that went unsaid

The message in the nod, the tilt of his head, 

the eye contact held too long. 

 

I liked his arms, skin brushing skin

Being

 

He bows at her body, thankful and polite, acknowledges the service, plays the part.

She smiles at stories, smart enough to be cynical but hopeful enough to be happy. 

He takes out a notepad and pretends not to watch for a reaction 

As she reads his silver words

As she reads his mind through the blunt tool of his silver words.

He runs. 

He thinks he’s wrong because she told h...
