Not Love Me

Best to not love me

when I see all the dark shadows

between spaces.

The silence is my cave

I have no problem being there

for months. Reflecting.

Loving you between sighs.

I am not from your street corner

but we speak the same slang.

You could love me too easily

and I’m jealous of how easy

you enter and leave a room

while I am observing the sky.

I like your eyes on mine

but I stare off into space

when you ask me a question

probably all the music in my head.

I am daydreaming

of your kisses along

all the parts of my body

no one can see

while I wait in line

for my coffee.

It is a perfect place to face reality

head on


in anticipation

of your words

alongside mine

your face

closer to my skin.

All these connotations

leave you pacing

or maybe not even caring

about my ring.

You are comfortable with

your wife and kids

living the dream,

going to parties

and dressing up fancy,

you can beat me to the winning line

you can outsmart even yourself

everyone slayed at your feet

as you declare yourself

the wisest and smartest man

known to mankind.

I am just a girl

listening to some old

rolling stones tunes

reclining in my car seat

waiting for my kids

and contemplating

what I have to cook

for dinner to survive

another day

alive and kicking.
