Somethin’ Stupid

am i beautiful enough for you
she says
she asks

but she says it
questioningly – demanding an answer.

i am stunned
pulled back

these years my love
i say…still stunned
together…..
where we meld together
a Marc Chagall blue flier over the night

and yet

you’re right

but not how you think.
your question
your demand for an answer –
it weighs on me as well.

no.

your query has never crossed my mind
questioning you
however….
i have questioned myself
wondering if

i’m beautiful enough for you.
am i?

I question
I demand.
