My Day In Comparison (Circa 1984)

“I go to her breast like bees to a sweet flower.”  -OTS

 

Of waking in such a world:

 

Eyes dark to the element of night.

Avoiding aversion, focused assertion:

I have to do this.

 

Alerted companion, shield your gaze.

This hour will not see you wake:

Sleep beacons and pulls you back.

 

A kiss goodnight again; what we do before bed.

Kiss on the lips.

 

Morning, noon, and night, it doesn’t matter…

Like prayer, but better.

 

She was wet with excitement, I was hard to conceal.

 

Few words to discuss.

What is the meaning?

 

Love or lust?

Is this real?

 

Bike to work; quaint, quiet, alone, thoughts of others.

My Day In Comparison.

 

Who cares?  I am not everyone else, am I?

I miss love like I would miss oxygen too, just like you:

 

Held under water to die-when you are gone, begging you to come my way, to come my way and stay.  Forever long.

 

And I wake with another…

Beep, beep, beep.

Another day to stumble through, thoughts of you.

 

And the sound of a hand slapping plastic is echoed through the sheets.

No damage is done, I pull the blankets over her face and leave.

 

***

I think…

My mother always told me to watch out for Number One.

  1. Crude. Every one of your ex-lovers is hoping she is not the one with the sheet pulled over her head like a butterface.
