Nailing Skirts

Nailing Skirts

A Poem by Destinyxi

I have never, in my life, been so frustrated with someone.

Nailing Skirts

 

You pick up your skirts and go

Leave me watching you leave

Hanging onto every word you’ve said

Through the night

Looking after your fading silhouette

 

If I were a guy

My fingers wouldn’t even be enough

To count how many times

You’ve left me with blue balls

Just when the going gets good

You leave faster than ever

 

You leave me longing

You leave me confused

I’m a virgin in this situation

I’m inexperienced and lost

Questions ride me hard

They eat at my very bones

 

My confusion turns to anger

And the next time you come around

I try to be cold and keep up a front

But you wither your way back into position

Back into my head

Back under my skin

And it starts all over again

 

I can’t get enough

You never stay long enough to satisfy me

I’m always wanting and longing for more

My mouth is always dry

And my body is always throbbing

 

I’m going to nail your skirts to the ground

Keep you beside me

Have you explain all this to me

My poor virgin ears

 

I don’t understand

I’m half in denial

What I want and what I need

You

Society wouldn’t hear of it

 

Stay here

And lay things out for me

And stop

Just stop

Leaving when it gets good

Escaping me

And leaving me here with tattered sheets

And a room of echoed words

Author's Note

Destinyxi
You get up, brush off your skirt, and take off. Leaving me before I can reach out a hand and grab onto you. Asking you where you're going, when you'll be back, why you're leaving me when I just ripped out a chunk of me and threw it on the bed.

Bleh...

Enjoy

Your style is developing well, it's becoming more fluid. At first I didn't like the format of the last stanza, but upon reading it again it actually suits since the message is that good. Well done my fellow Montrealer!

A very good write about infatuation with a desire forbidden. Sensual and full of strong emotion.

i'll keep that in mind lol
Your really show us your frustration and desire for this person. It seems like it goes deeper than that person trying to play hard to get. Playing hard to get becomes old after awhile and I think you show us what happens when someone does it at a high level. I hope this has been sorted out for you.

These are my favorite lines:

Questions ride me hard
They eat at my very bones

But common :P
These feelings of frustration are ubiquitous in traditional relationships (no matter which tradition you adhere to) but then throw in the added bonus of confusing the hell out of your sexual identity and all bets are off. Really compelling piece, and the frustration is apparent, even without the description ;-) Thank you for sharing this with us. It can't have been an easy write.
