YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE

Three lose buttons on my shirt
and you chose the one
that’s so difficult to fiddle with,
leaving you frustrated
and me annoyed,
but us both –
breathless.

Your eyes were screaming
words that start with “L”,
while I was counting
passing cars and
begging you
to keep your sentences
inside your
mouth,

so I could swallow
vowels of your words
(the ones that you arrange
so neatly in-between
your fingers)
and make new sounds
that rhyme with
moans
you cannot make.

I hate to say this,
but
I miss you.

    You are so good, you should be published! I try to figure out your formula, but ends up with one word:”credibility”! I haven’t read all your posts yet, but I think it would be interesting to read something where you exploring a foreign territory, somewhere where youre not safe, traveling on a dangerous and adventures path or dropped down in a completely different world.
    Love!

      That is such a brilliant comparison, my dear. Even I wouldn’t have thought of it. Thank you. I would prefer to spread out dew, but I have none 🙂
