Eying Envy

Eying Envy

A Poem by The Things She Noted

She met me in the cafe 

Late noon 

Though we said early 

I’ve sat waiting 

It no longer upsets me 

Embarrassing 

But okay, understanding 

I know she’ll show 

Even if it means I must sip on cold coffee just to hear her speak 

Slow and soft

Pedals on a rose 

Dripping in pigment 

Dripping down the stems 

On to the floor 

Puddling at my feet 

Pretty 

Delicate 

She sits 

Says sorry 

Have you been waiting long? 

I shake my head 

A little laugh 

No not long 

Though I could wait a life time 

If she would just ask

Emerald workout clothes 

No sweat stains 

Hair slicked back 

Gel not sweat 

No make up make up look 

I don’t wish to be with her 

But my desire to be like her consumes me 

When I lay under my cotton sheets I suck in my tummy 

So tight it aches 

And I touch myself 

Wondering if she may be touching herself as well

How her hands must feel

How her breath must be heated 

Her comforter cool 

Does she scream into the silk of her pillow 

Or is she silent in her pleasure 

I try to curve my body 

Push out my chest 

I want to be wanted 

Sexy 

Slow and mysterious 

But she does it carelessly 

And I care far too much 

My make up too heavy 

My dress too formal 

My hair too curled 

Too in place 

Trying so hard 

To not try at all

I wonder if she is as exhausted as I am
