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


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

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.

Thank you!
I wanna just say 'A******s' and leave it at that, but I recognize that frustration screaming through this write, It's all a learning experience, and we all need jerks in our lives to wake us up to the real thing....eventually, it'll happen. Depressing but good pen.

life is a learning experience itself, thanks for reviewing :)
Fascinating poem...I just woke up and its my first read of the day. The paradigm of it I think is that if you weren't left wanting more, you wouldn't care nearly as much. I know with me it has always been that way. Anything or anyone that makes itself too available I tend to brush off, as if it is to easily obtained, and thus unworthy of my attentions. Perhaps that is why I am still single, never married or engaged, and had a plethora of physical relationships that never quite reach the depth it requires to be comfortable without sex. A+ because it, like its author is hot;)

H or R? Douchebags. >.> Dan kinda said it right... but I have to add to it. Date as many jerks as you like, just stop ripping chunks out because they don't deserve them. Jerks are fun for a quick ride but that is all. Don't give them something that's so important.

As for the poem, really depressing, Kels... really f*****g depressing for someone who cares about you to read. I got your back if you ever need anything. Promise.

Good then problem solve and be done with em
Damn, this is wrenching. The sense of abandonment in your words would be heartbreaking. Thankfully, I'm a heartless individual and am immune to that aspect of this poem. It's always infuriating to put yourself out there, to take the risk and go with the gamble, and gain not a single thing for it. Keep your chin up lass, pick up that chunk of yourself, glue it back on, walk it off and you'll be right as rain. Scarred, as always happens in this type of situation, but right as rain. You'll find someone someday who'll always catch you when you put yourself out there, you're too awesome to have constant s**t luck. Amazing poem, as always. Sorry I've been falling behind, used to be so diligent about reading and reviewing your stuff. You're as awesome as I remember.

Well you really portrayed your frustration perfectly, and it's funny although maybe not to you, but it made me laugh and it's quite a good read.
