In Waiting

On a stone seated
below the steel canopy
she sends an email from her iPad,
Across a 2000 miles divide. 

A lady has many partners
But only one lover!

Tears slide down and streak her cheeks; 
Grime the smooth surface of the tab, 
cracked nail polish tells a tale of neglect?
Yet she smiles, 

Couples move purposefully,
glancing curiously as she painfully hints a smile. 

She is on guard, proud 
I am not alone just waiting; 
he will be here soon, 
just let me be.

She gathers her skirts - 
the rustle is comforting,

The warmth of the iPad 
is a consolation; 
the sent report a satisfaction, 
her lover is close as it were.

I travel the road less travelled
I choose the untrodden path.

Unshod, my feet do fly as my thoughts
soar, and fly before the email hits…
Lover here I am, just out of the door.
Won’t you unlatch your soul?
