for him

how in the world did I lose six pounds?
it could not be walking up the stairs every morning
it’s only two flights to the office
neither is it with lifting weights twice a week
I should have gained more muscle than lose weight
it could not be walking less than a kilometre home
all I got for it every time is a sweaty back
now I remember
it’s from thinking of you the entire time
I do these other activities
thinking too much translates into

nervous energy that burns

[Disclaimer: I’m NOT a poet. Poetry is a huge personal Waterloo. In fact, a few years ago, I was traumatized from writing poetry (THAT would probably be in another post…someday). It’s only a few weeks ago that I’ve tried my hand again in this genre, and this is one of them. I’m still not confident, though. Any feedback on this particular piece? I’m certainly looking at this one as a work-in-progress.]

    • That’s fine. As long as there’s sustained physical activity, we should be good. You for your teaching load, while mine for sitting on my butt the entire darn morning for the last two weeks. šŸ˜›
