She Doesn't Know You Still

It’s still winter,
and she doesn’t know you still,
and you don’t understand her either.
Although, because of you,
She learned how to drink a cup of coffee,
and how to follow the instincts
to feel your touches,
and then not feel them.
To make peace with your other loving birds
without adding fresh scars,
and continue her support to you,
To look side ways when her opponents
Refer her “your wife”,
So that you feel the urge to veil
the fact, she doesn’t  clarify
because she knows.
What do you think?
Part of you enjoy this ambiguity,
No valid advances, not really,
She is happy and sad at the same time,
The X of her arms uncrossing and crossing,
Her eyes refuse to meet yours
Since she doesn’t want to show you
That she cares, or cares not.

folks tend to go their own ways to win, there are two sided stories out there.
you are doing better.

I enjoyed this so much. It's always hard to be truly vulnerable, isn't it?

You captured the ambiguity we can often feel "in love."

Heaven said...

I was thinking of this while in Mexico this past week. People watching on the beach and seeing if you could identify someone that was happy in their relationship by just looking. It became a strained experiment because even many of those that looked happy seemed as though they were still searching for something else, or attention for somewhere else or...oh you know what I mean. I start to think is is crazier to think that the way we have set up the administrative side of love and lust is too flawed to ever be the answer. Great insight, and great writing.

I really liked this piece. It is filled with such emotion! It just made my imagination wander all over the place.
