    talking to you
    is like dipping my toe in cool water
    a chill runs up my spine as you remain
    oblivious to my feelings
    only caught up in your own
    immaturity
    self absorbed, obsessed over…romance
    and by chance
    an older woman and a younger man
    can
    make this thing called love happen
    unconventionally
    but
    in the long run
    it’s the older men that see me and their heads
    spin and their lips lick and their eyes become saucers
    because they see me as a wo-man
    and they know that I deserve the best
    as i laugh and say
    my children are my life
    and i can wear soft cotton blends
    and grow my hair long
    and feel ethnic patterns below my feet
    and
    i can laugh pure resonating laughter
    it rings from my throat
    and the scent of oil lingers upon
    your skin after we have made love and you obsess
    over possessing a woman such as me
    because talking to you again
    someday you will see
    but it will not be until after
    i have been gone for a while
    because I slowly remove my toe from
    cool water

    So nice.

    I have a very weak spot for a mature woman because they're in the know.
