"Out of Reach"

"Out of Reach"

A Poem by Steven


It was when I watched you
seize your pony tail by the base
and slowly pull it all the way out,
letting a thousand soft silk strands
fall back in place
piece by piece
while your slender fingers with
bright red polished nails continued
their momentum into the breeze,
as if every inch of movement
was pure sex to your hand,
that I decided I needed to know
who you were.

But you were
in the car behind me.
So instead,
I smiled
at all my mirrors.

how many times on the road, on an airplane, in a crowded elevator, how many times on the beach, talking with her friends, she makes a gesture, a slight unconscious motion of long fingers brushing hair from her eyes, how many times have we fallen instantly in love, only to be unplugged from the passing moment by any of those small heart breakers of chance...you have penned this so well that a hundred memories came and went, just like that...you're the man, Steven

Bullshit. You're in another one of your "I don't like her anymore" phases.

Thankya buddy
I love this, genuinly made me laugh. So true the longing we often feel to get to know more about someone but cannot. Often leaves you wondering if you have just seen "the one" pass you by.
