0013 A Poem to a Lover II [22 May 1995]

Author’s note: Sometimes when I look back at my 15 year old self and the poetry I wrote then, I cringe in mortification. But then again, I am 36 now. 21 years separates the me of now and the me of then. I hope you enjoy.

Dear Gonzalo,
I am but one of many,
Who wishes to hold you in her arms.
Another bewitched,
By your charms.

I often wonder what happens,
In the darkness of night.
Surrounded by your power,
Underneath your might.

You are sleek and handsome,
Like a swift cheetah.
Your muscles moving under your skin,
Like a river over rocks.

Watching this power,
I shiver with anticipation.
Aware of not only the grace,
But the man who controls it.

I must wonder,
Out of every girl,
Holds your interest.

Yet with my shy gazelle ways,
I am powerless against the cheetah.
As the woman inside me,
Is powerless against the man.
