I wish I could afford

the plane ticket 

to travel all the way to you.

But I don't think there is enough

to pay the cost

to really get to you.


Instead you seem to be that beautiful photo

glanced in a magazine

while waiting for my oil to be changed.


Instead you seem to be that drumbeat

in the unknown song 

I only have heard once.


Instead you seem to be that place

on the other side

of the sunset through my window.


I wish I could understand

the desires spoken

by the heat in your eyes.

But I don't think there is enough

words I could say

to really know you.


But please believe 

that I really want to travel

 and stay there in that place

with you.

I must admit during writing I was thinking of the mundane things a woman would be doing while she was dreaming of far away places and that mystery man/lover/exotic crush. However, I absolutely adore the innuendo now that you have pointed it out...
