Breathe In, Breathe Out (part 4.)

Breathe In, Breathe Out (part 4.) 1

Leading the way to your bathroom, king size of course

Black and white, with gold trim

Spotless floor, oval pebblestone bowls for a sink

A place where luxury galore

“You’re such a royal”

Chuckling to yourself, amused and joyous

Her childhood happiness is beginning to resurface

It’s been underground for so long

That you were starting to think that she, her essence, was gone

Maybe today’s is Groundhog’s Day

But this time she’ll see her shadow

*****

Setting her down on the edge of the tub

Gazing into her eyes as you bend down to remove her sandals, placing them to the side

“Towels are on the counter. This is common ground for you so feel free”

Waving your hand aimlessly around the vicinity, signaling it’s all hers

Just like my heart is 

Moving towards the cabinet underneath the sink

Sorting through body wash that doesn’t smell so masculine

You hear ruffling, citing that her off white lace dress has fallen to the ground

Breath hitched. Senses fixated. Aroused, in a protective way.

 Jesus

Control the beast. Breathe In, Breathe Out. Stay calm.

Your right-hand finds “Alors Vanille”, reads the soap bar.

This’ll do, mom’s favorite

Standing to face her, a soft voice calls out

“Kaheem? “Will you stay with me?”
