True

  

 •

This poem comes with an apology! Not my normal genre… It’s possible I may actually been possessed! 😉

.

You… 

You touch my face

I shiver 

Look into my eyes

I can’t breathe

Stroke my arm 

And warmth

Pools 

From the depths

Radiating

Rising

Enveloping 

Every inch of my soul

I try 

To shake it off

But you…

Make me feel

In a moment

Like the sun, moon, stars

You

Make me want 

To stay there forever 

You

Make me ‘feel’.

Unseen

  

I wash your clothes

Do the dishes 

Make your tea

Unseen

.

I clean the house

Strip the beds

Pay (more than) half the bills

Invisibly

.

I put on some makeup

A pretty dress

Bake you a cake

You acknowledge the latter

.

I wear sexy undies

Hoover in the nude

(I know I look good)

You suggest clothes

.

I go to the pub

Stay out late

Pretend I’m drunk (I don’t drink)

You are indifferent 

.

18 years…

I have no engine

Am not a motorbike 

Nor a train

Not even a pint of beer

.

I’m just no longer…

On your visual periphery
