And after being strong all day
every day
every damn day
I could barely  
make it through the door  
before peeling off my barriers,
and rubbing my cheek against
your thigh.  

Eyes on you.

 
Pins fell from your hands  
unbinding my hair,  
your belt  
slipped around my wrists,
and I sighed my relief
at the sound of a strap
on your palm.
 
Because I understood the  
exchange.
 
It took strength,  
from us both.  
 
Strength, and  
grace,
and admiration  
to bend my neck,
to close my eyes,
to act  
only  
upon  
your  
accord.  
 
My admiration doesnt waiver.
 
But Id dont feel very  
fucking graceful  
today.  
 
I flick a long, dark ponytail over my shoulder,
the straps of my six inch fuck-me heels
delicate around my ankles.  
 
You have to tilt your chin to
meet me at eye level,
because biology and Louboutin  
afford me the height advantage
 
And Im haughty as hell,
my ass hanging out of
dark red lace
of which I have no urge to
divest myself.
 
My neck is unbowed,
my gaze implacable.
 
a crack of something  
on my ungloved palm
leaves a
thick
red
mark.
 
And after being strong all day,
every day,
every damn day,
 
I can wait patiently
for you to make it through the door  
before I peel off your barriers,
and rest my taut thigh  
on your shoulder.  
 
Eyes on me.
