OUT OF REACH
OUT OF REACH
I watch you while you apply your makeup, your mouth open, pulled down, your eyes wide as you apply your mascara. I mimic the action. You run your fingers through your hair and blow me a kiss. My heart soars but all too soon you are walking away and there is nothing but darkness as I remain suspended, waiting, until we meet again.
A chance meeting in a lift and my heart pounds, I watch as you press the button for the top floor. I ache to touch you as you lean toward me, but knowing it is forbidden, I restrain myself. You walk away again, leaving behind the scent of your perfume; sweet and tangy. I break from the rules and breathe in deep, consuming you and wait once again.
You are seated at a table in a small café, I watch as you pick up your cup, blow gently over the top and take a sip. Unconsciously I mirror your actions. My eyes narrow and then widen in surprise as a man joins you. I smile because I know he is not a threat. He is not someone who could take you away from me. I am happy to share you for now because our special time is fast approaching.
My breath is coming quick. I watch from above as you touch yourself. Your skin is slick with sweat, your body
writhing against the sheets; head thrown back, eyes closed and mouth slightly
parted. You arch your back taking yourself deeper and I ache to touch you but instead I touch myself. Your eyes are closed but mine are wide open as I watch you, feel you bring yourself to the climax you crave. My body shudders in time to yours.
You stretch like a cat, a feline grin upon your face. Our eyes meet and you look at me, really look
at me and for the first time I feel like we are really connecting. I will touch you. I will take you. And then
you roll onto your side, close your eyes and the moment has passed. I shake silently now, suddenly afraid at how close I have come to breaking the rules, how close I have come to losing you forever, because I can never touch you, can not have you.
I am nobody.
I am a shadow.
I am a reflection.
