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

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
