When He Comes Home (Working title)

*************
Flexing my wings a bit, this poem is different than the norm.
*************


He's been gone
I've been waiting
all day,
Dreaming of the scene...
He'll walk through the door,
I'll grab him
Army camo and all
Upstairs
We'll fall
On the pillowy duvet
And I'll say
“Fuck me hard,
I've wanted you”
He'll give it to me deep
The cavalry unbridled
Imagine it
Him and me

Then it happens,
he comes home,
And I grab him like I planned
“It's you and me,
upstairs,
Don't change.”
I give him a sexy grin.
Instead, he pulls away
“I need to grab my bags”
He says.
Anger ripples under my skin.
I watch
Ego crushed.
Mood shattered.
As he walks out the door,
Apalled
I wonder
When will I be what matters more?

I left this one open in terms of main-character gender so that you could put yourself in their narrator's POV either way. This is a bit different than my other poems, a bit angrier, but I thought I would see what I could make of it. I might do more man-in-camo poems that are a little more uplifting because, let's face it, there's just something about a man in uniform.

A note about the title: It could easily change. I keep thinking this title might be better served on an erotic poem. We'll see.

Update: I must have written this awhile ago...I did end up using this title for an erotic poem and then changed the title of that poem based on a reader's suggestion and am using it now for this poem, which apparently pre-dated that one. :-P
