every night
And
You

Me

Yearning
If
You wanted
me
you
Would
have me
I feel the weight

     of you

your pores singe my skin

but

     only in memory

now

Pushed up against the wall

     and

begging for more

(I had Blue Note coffee this morning-for the first time in a VERY long time- hint of cinnamon….)

I did it for me

But I was thinking of you
Who knew

my

is

“Trailer Trash”?

Dilemma
I want you in the worst way and I don’t want to betray her

As much as I want to pounce on your vulnerability and wrap my legs around you I must caution you that those two things are mutually exclusive

Hey Stranger (Mr.Wiz)
Congratulations!
I truly am happy that you are so happy
I just miss the **** out of you sometimes
If you ever go poly
or single……
sure hope you find me

I have no claim on your time

You chose the bottle over me for 27 years

You won’t get that chance again

You’re so

it’s with
someone else

my beloved Benjamin
You went from my little boy with hugs and laughter and curiosity to a stranger in what felt like overnight.

Every second of my life
Gone in a flash
Lost

lost
Lost
You make me feel like nothing
and I can’t believe
the sucker punch of those
words
How did I not see this ?

Your problem is that

Side chick
I spend enough of my time dodging my
husband’s girlfriends
I don’t want to put on a show
and play nice
with my boyfriend’s new wife
This heart belongs to me
I
am
the

one
who
can
protect
it

Reminding me of the first

Knee deep in the surf
You
Literally
Swept me off my feet

The one that got away
I had the strangest thought
as I pulled up to the stop sign

You lifted your finger as if to wave
when I signaled you to proceed from the
four way stop

and I thought
“What if that was a potential ….”
the possibilities endless
and the moment lost

so sad that I can’t share this joy with you

telling that you’re not here
The days go trickling past
as the day goes trickling past

When I finally find myself on the other side of the door.....

Facing the precipice

Toes curled in anticipation
....suspense

or terror

To meet your gaze
awkwardness abounds

Feels like home

Both welcoming and bittersweet after all this time

nothing but
time
separating us

Except in this moment

I want to feel the *****-le
                                         of
                                    your
                     ­           Skin as
                          your body
                  a puzzle piece
             snaps into my Z -
         curve thighs juxtaposed
     mine back to yours front joined
melted melded mended most effortlessly

What you fail
to see
thru
your twisted
perspective
is that I’m not taking
your power
and
I never have.
What I am doing
is taking back
my power
so
I won’t be so hurt anymore.
It’s not
my fault
you gave all yours away.
It’s not my job to restore that for you.

Brief visit in the garden

At first I cast myself
     as Eve
  just seemed logical

On second thought -
    I was the apple

I see the memory of
      my juices dripping

“All I need is this air in my lungs...”

No need

That day you got off

    my pain a prescient phenomena
of the future of our union

No worries

I wore misleading “white”
You stated misleading vows

not afraid of angels
when they come to me in a dream
(offering promises of carnal delight)
“you and me
we should probably just let it be”
I agree
but it shouldn’t feel
this good
this fine
this free
just to be with you
even in a figment of my imagination
and then I said
“I have to go“
feeling the absence
slowly seep
as I ascend
a rocky stair
without turning back
certain you are still there
