Sunshine Wait (standard:poetry, 251 words)
Author: Finn McKoolAdded: Mar 25 2003Views/Reads: 1744/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Another installment to that woman who I'm always pining for, the impending summer, and my simple prayer for us.

It's summer, love. 

And wherever you are you're walking in jeans to hide the self-inflicted
scars. How unjust for the rest of us. 

I want to see your scars. I want to trace them with finger-tips and
tongue. Darling we all got scars inside and out. 

I just want to bathe in the sun with you. To roll around sweaty in
sunlight with you. To hold you close, despite the heat, because of the 

I just want to bring a little sunshine imto your life. I have this
Quixotic tendency to want to save people, love. I can't do for me, but 
I'll do for you, and do and do and do all that I can. 

But you won't open your wings to speak. You won't let me in (and yes I
stole that line, from Adam Duritz in fact. If I ever make money off 
this, he'll get his cut. I am an honorable man, after all). 

Green fields, butterflies, sunshine, the smell of grass, all that
hallmark bullshit you read and hear, I want it for you. I want it all. 
I'd give it all up for that for you if it made you happy. 

But you won't. I don't know if you want to be happy yet. I don't know if
you can let yourself be happy yet. Maybe that's why you won't let me 
in. But I'm waitin' darlin' I'm waitin. Here on my front porch. And I 
can't enjoy the sunshine much. Not without you.
