Corner Of My Eye

by V

Did you know
That as I sit here writing
Out of the corner of my eye
I see you over there, all stretched out on the next bench

Beautiful, black skin glistening, all sun-kissed and sensual
Long powerful legs sprawled out before you
As if the entire world lie waiting anxiously at your feet
Well-muscled arms, outstretched
Ready to seize the world in their piercing grip
Strong, broad, brown shoulders
Capable of carrying the weight of an entire universe.

Maybe, in a past life
You were a strong, fierce warrior
Protecting your home, your family
Maybe me….
Me, your not so secret admirer
Softly singing the verses of my love to you

Or perhaps, you regally sat upon your kingly throne
Contemplating me…
Your Nubian Queen
As I sit, quill and ink in hand
Immortalizing my love thoughts to you 
Within my secret scrolls

All of this I see
Out of the corner of my eye
As I sit here and write
Me over here….
You over there…
Not even conscious of the fact
That the entire time you've been watching me
I've been watching you back
