I wrote this for a guy I was “talking to” in high school. I wrote about him here. He was what some people might have called a douchebag. I feel like my former schoolmate Suai…except I didn’t almost write him a love [poem]. Hmph! I take it back and I’m giving it to you lovelies instead. <3 Hope you enjoy it.
Nothing but trees, bugs,
And my heart,
Bifocal lenses locked on your
Loose-limbed gait, wrapped
Around your face like your smile
Shining on me, ninety degrees in
Slow drawls, time crawls
Only my mind racing
Chasing after the honey
In your voice, oozing down the
Coating my earlobes.
No Georgia peaches, blood-sucking leeches,
Just the nectar I suck from your eyes
Through the last straw of distance
Like a water
Dousing the inferno caused by
The lack of your laugh, like
Chimes tinkling in one of the too sparse
Caressing the dirt roads in
*I just love how all of these poems so far have been so very different. I’m posting this as a bonus…the usual poetry will be posted tomorrow sometime.
