A Look in the Hourglass

I couldn’t help but feel for you still with a desperate longing to take that enormous head of yours all bottled up in your insecurities and ego and cradle it between my naked petite breasts.

 There was a look of sadness
in your eyes that told me
what you might be thinking.
Decisions and your decision making.
Typically, one makes their decisions alone
and then shares their outcomes
with the ones they love.
To hell with the consequences
even though it hurts.
 
I couldn’t help but feel for you still
with a desperate longing
to take that enormous head of yours
all bottled up in your insecurities and ego
and cradle it between my naked petite breasts.
Hoping still
for some future time
or alternate universe
after a night of love making
to desire nothing
except
to be with you.
 
I desire nothing
except
to just be with you.
 
And then I separate from you
to think clearly
periodically
and focus
on the path
that’s been set before me.
I still hope
that you
will be part
of my journey.
 
Come
and crash along my shores
like a Viking sent to conquer
or a boat lost at sea
in a storm.
Come
and just lay down beside me
lay down your arms darling
and I’ll lay down my lines
and we will just be
what we were meant to
become.
