Musings~ Sore Stomach Muscles (RP 14)

A Poem By Kassady // 6/15/2014

Musings I
I should have said more,
Made more of an effort,
Maybe it's just nerves,
Or maybe it's the way you look at me,
Your eyes soaking in,
Every inch of my face.
I want those eyes to stay,
But I want them to close.
Both thrilled and uncomfortable,
By your undivided attention.
I must have ADD,
For I can't sit still,
I want to move,
Closer,
I want to shift and to squirm,
Because that look makes me feel,
Makes me feel beautiful,
Too beautiful.

Musings II
Your physical attraction is doubtless,
But I want this to be more,
I know it should be more,
Why can I not be sure?
Can I not tell the difference...
The difference between love and lust?
Why can I not trust myself?
My mind says that the heart is unreliable,
But everyone tells me to listen to my heart.
So many voices,
Telling me what's wrong and right,
So many voices,
Which one is truth?
Which one is a lie?

Musings III
Words used to come easily,
Now I don't know what to say,
What can I say?
When every voice within my head,
Competes to be heard,
To be tended to and taken into account.
These voices tear me apart,
Tearing me apart from you,
From what I think is love.
It is,
I am sure...
But what is love?
I am not sure...
Is everything I see or seem but a witless dream?
A nonsensical daydream of fantasy,
Where I skip and jump,
High off your scent,
Your looks,
Your touch.
Grinning like an idiot at the memories,
The memories of past conversations,
Jokes and silliness shared.
We are more that what they see,
For I would rather sit and stare at you,
Completely in silence,
Than never see you again.

Shirt Sleeve
Cloth captures your scent,
So much better than my skin.
I lean over constantly,
To smell my sleeve,
Inhaling what's left of you.

Sore Stomach Muscles
It hurts to laugh,
But, oh goodness, it feels so good!
"Ow" I manage to gasp out,
As I sway,
Almost tipsily, around.
It hurts to laugh,
My muscles tight and sore.
Try as I might,
I can't stop myself from laughing.
Your silly, ridiculous, childish, humor,
Has got me giggling uncontrollably!
Don't make me laugh,
Oh please,
It hurts,
But, oh goodness, it feels so good!

Comments

These were good, but

These were good, but especially Shirt Sleeve. It jumped out and surprised me. It was really wonderfully worded and the whole theme was great. I love this line: Cloth captures your scent,
So much better than my skin

It's so visual, and so simple, but the notion says a lot. I really love it, Kass. <3

Also, I've yet to see you refer to your boyfriend as "my boyfriend" and I was like, almost surprised when you did. In a good way! haha! *pats your head* You're growing up so fast! :')

Anyways, love ya! Good job!!!

Thank you so much for reading and commenting. I'm going to try to so more simple, shorter poems, because those always seem to have more of an impact than others...
