This was all I ever wanted
In a reflection, ambuscading, through a key hole my deep blue eyes
roving, before the drapery conceals me, I
touch her creamy back, wonder the imperfection
Out of the disproportionate window,
watching over her, I anticipate this time, all I ever need.
Painting her as I fancy the thick curls brushing
my face, the flickering eyelids teasing me,
I run to reach to her
but she shuts the window.
Admiring the satin skin in faint stars, till the
gentle breeze flows me in through the gaps, minute gaps.
I listen to her plastic talking, all night long
to a many people, I think I never knew,
She perceives my presence
around her ear, when I whisper, around the age old lamp
when I blow the candle, around the chime
when I present my heart,
she overlooks her hand held against mine.
This brings me down from the ceiling down her bed,
I hear her, loving someone,
but I don’t know how to cry.
Waiting eternally to go back to where I belong,
Out her window, out her scent
till with morning light, she sends me free
only to lie and think of her, waiting eternally to go back
for a dawn to rise all over again.
Eyeing her all over day, searching for the words
I ll have to say,
till at night, I see her loving someone.
