She studies herself

in the full-length mirror.

She knows that he cannot see her, does not see her, may never see her.

Yet she turns through three hundred and sixty degrees.

Aware of her breasts beneath the shirt, her arse and her thighs, tight in her jeans, the way the morning light touches her skin.

She runs her hands through her hair and lets it fall.

She hopes he likes the way she looks.

And though his eyes may never find her

She still seeks his approval.

    This was pretty. And sad.

    And I liked the cheeky bit about ‘because I can’ 😂

    You’ve motivated me to write my own poetic expressions on this site. Thank you. 🙏🏾😊

    Reading your writing today reminds me of my relationship I’ve had with God, at various stages of growth. At one point, I would only wear an outfit if I had a clear “unction” that God approved. Since God is a Spirit and not flesh, I may never actually see God watching me, but I definitely felt the Presence. I don’t think it’s appropriate to assign that role to any human being. That’s why we have eyes and hands and a body and mouth, to adore each other with. To do anything less is an arrogant futility. Which is the saddest part…to deny oneself the physical connections of love and lust. Anyway, once a person dies, all physicalities ceases. But… I believe there are a select few who see beyond the veil and understand the Spirit realm unlimited, a very select few, imho. I’m not one of them… yet! 😉 In layman’s terms… fuck me, baby, now! ☺️
