Painting of a Nude

painting of a nude

i long to see you naked
having just woken
without your makeup

supine on your single bed
with arms raised
you only sigh
and close your eyes
at my arrival

and ask me for a coffee

you’d be the subject
of a modern painting
in a French gallery

while viewers stop
stand and watch
to see you hiding

but tonight you are drunk

measuring yourself
against a score of suitors
who cannot eclipse you

in the morning
you will be dressed
in those clothes
that don’t exactly fit
so i will sigh
and long to see you naked

Thanks to @tinypaleokitchen who produced the amazing artwork.
