Poems By Nicole Borg

Longing

 

At eight, I wanted to be

you– blue-eyed and blonde-

haired– you wore stylish

clothes, drove fast cars, had

all the accessories. Your

long legs were sexy

in short skirts, your feet

were made for heels. I studied

you, with a young girl’s

appreciative eye, imagining

your nipple-less breasts

giving shape to my

loose shirts, curves to my

straight body. Your sex was

smooth, unformed– I didn’t

understand– you were barren

even then. You had

everything– the Corvette

and the Dream House,

a steady boy and rich

friends. I thought

you had everything

a girl could want.

Every thing.
