Should

I should be

working.

I should be

sleeping.

I should be

grading

or

cleaning

or

writing something

other than poems

for you.

I should be

focusing.

I should be

planning.

I should be

dreaming of a time

when I can breathe

without you.

Instead of should be,

I’m doing shouldn’t.

I’m writing endless

strings of sad sentiments

for a heart

who loves another.

Instead of should be,

I’m thinking of your

face,

hands,

eyes,

fingers sliding up my thigh,

gripping my flesh.

I’m imagining your

hot mouth

devouring my skin,

slicing through my

nerves like a

red hot poker.

I should be

touching him.

I should be

holding him.

I should be

loving him.

Instead I feel

your rough hands

glide along a body

that shivers

under your touch.

Instead,

your eyes burn

with a desire

that only comes in

my dreams.

  1. Hi! We would love to feature this on our blog. (We have a goal of posting a new poem, short story, or quote every Tuesday.) And of course we’d give author credit however you wanted us to. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Your poems always seem to come when my own feelings are mirroring yours.. I’ve been thinking about my “shouldn’t” a lot lately.. trying to find reasons to hold on to my “should”… this certainly complicates life. Great poem as always and congrats on the feature!
