Untitled Relationship Poem #2

***Running a little behind schedule today. I wrote this one Saturday December 22/18.***

It hurts me.
Stupidly
I want to wait.
How dumb?
How degrading
that I am putting your wants first?
I love you so
which floors me
leaves me tongue tied
speechless.
I have dropped
scorned
men who want my time
worship at the temple of my body
solely
for the truth
the hope
that your hands will touch me
your love
wrap around me.
Tears
streaming
streaking
filming my gaze
staring at you
wondering
do you still love me too?
I hope.
December 22/18

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
