A mixture of art in all its forms and random grabs from life and whatever else bubbles up….

Dont make me nervous…

I Said Coffee by Sharmagne Leland-St. John

I said coffee
I didn’t say,
“would you
like to cup
my warm
soft breasts
in your
un-calloused,
long,
tapered,
ring less fingered
hands?”
I said coffee
I didn’t say,
“would you
like to
run your tongue
along my neck
just below
my left ear-lobe?”
I said coffee
I didn’t say,
“would you
like to
hold me
in your arms
and feel my heart
skip beats
as you press your
hard, lean body
up against mine
until I melt
into you
with desire?”
I said coffee
as we stood there
in the jasmine
scented night
my car door
like some modern day
bundling board
separating us,
protecting us
from ourselves
and lust
I said,
“would you
like to go for
a cup of coffee?”
I didn’t say,
“would you
like to brush
your lips
across mine
as you move
silently
to bury your face
in my long, silky,
raven black hair?”
But you said,
“I can’t
I’m married
I can’t trust myself
to be alone
with you.”
So I looked you
dead in the eye
and repeated
“I said coffee”
