Taking the Love Outta Love

Sitting here freshly bathed
Panties not bothered to be put on

Expecting
Waiting
Praying

For some effort made from your side

Nothing
Nada
Zilch

You make it clear it will happen
But only when your ready

Touching
Stroking
Moaning

But that’s just you prepping
This, I’ve learned is my sign to be
prepared

Tension
Tears
Silence

Is all I can give with this approach
This love-making is not what we had before
yet your expectations are the same

Faceless
Nameless
receptacle

Is how your actions make me feel
Tried to use words to express how I feel
You respond with silence
The sex, I don’t miss

Comfort
Commitment
Closeness

I miss those being between us
Wish these things could be fixed

  1. Faceless, nameless, receptacle…ouch! This poem brings up alot of memories and feelings for me! I’ve had a man like that it stunk!!! Your imagery and the feelings it stirred are strong!

    • Yeah….Not trying to sound conceited but I believe since I was writing when feelings were fresh they are. When I read my words again I am shocked at the feelings that are expressed. Thanks for appreciating. 🙂

Now it is your turn to speak...
