Stop

Stop. Stop making me think about you. You sat here staring into my eyes. Deeply you stared--looking, searching into my brain with those penetrating blue eyes that made me blush and look away. Did you implant something while you were there staring into my brain? Yes, I think you did. I didn’t look away quickly enough. You held me captive at times with those eyes of yours…icy blue that lingered and locked on mine in a soft but intense way that never quite undressed me yet penetrated me. Lost in your eyes, I couldn’t hear a word you said. My body betrayed me with gut wrenching butterflies and wobbly knees as I tried to stand. I nearly forgot how to speak or form a sentence. Nodding was handy. Damn those eyes.

You are here, and I want to kiss you. I want to kiss you so badly that I hurt, and the yearning is so deep that I feel tears welling up in my eyes, yet when you move to kiss me, I hug you instead. I’m scared. I’m terrified. I’m afraid that the passion will drive me insane or kill me or make me love you. We hug forever, and when you release me, I want more, and I get more. As you kiss my face and run your fingers through my hair, a moan moves through my throat and I want my body to melt into yours, yet I stop. I have to stop, because I don’t want to go insane or die or to love you. It hurts. I know your eyes are going to hurt me.

You called and told me everything wanted to hear. Did your eyes see those things in my brain? We drank coffee and laughed for hours like teenagers. Now it’s over--I have that same butterfly sick feeling in my stomach, because your eyes are still in my mind, and I think about how I almost went insane, almost died, almost fell in love. Take out what you put in my brain. Stop making me think about you.

I hate you. I think about you now and all I can see is how you licked the coffee spoon. You know you did it. I was standing right there. I might be a hillbilly, but even I know you don’t lick a gosh darned coffee spoon. Other people might want to stir their coffee with it! Do you realize from that point on I always gave you your own personal spoon? Let me also tell you that I was two seconds away from pulling a Joan Crawford on your buttocks, but I wasn’t going to beat you half to death with wire hangers, I was going to beat you with every gah dang spoon I had in the kitchen while screaming, “Don’t EVER lick the coffee spoon!” Oh, and I hate the fact that you play the organ.  I’ve stopped thinking about you.

What a spoof! Coffee spoon! haha! Well - good to be practical about these things, right? Just traipse off to work and let the passion fizzle. There will always be another cone man at the intersection! And he's probably undressing some other innocent beauty's car with his eyes.

Good one, Pam! :) I'm rating it UP, of course!

Feline Prophet, never would I commit adultry! I'm just putting some older stuff up while working on part 2 of the most satisfying marriage with the most wonderful man on earth. :D

This was truly funny. I will think of you today when I use my spoons and drink my tea. I just thought you were writing about an ex any way.

BJBenson, he was so fine until that tragic day...I call it the spoon tragedy of 2/10. ;) lol

Neil, a man with eyes like yours (I took a look--or tried!)would never disrespect a coffee spoon even if you do take yours black. I just know it. ;)

So good to see you back, Pam! And with style, too!

Personally, I never lick the coffee spoon. That's just gross. The butter knife, though...That's a whole different story!


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia Author

B.T., thanks so much! I never took you to be a spoon licker. Nope. Not for a minute. Gosh, I hope your butter knives aren't the serrated type! Although you do seem to be a rather daring jackalope who likes living on the edge. ;)

Pam What a read. Wow Your creative writing had me sitting on the edge. Captivating. The picture grabs right where it hurts as you said the heart. The good news you got over it?

Many Blessings. You have a new fan. You can write. I am grateful I landed on your hub. How did I do that? It was no mistake, that is for sure.

Thank You. Keep On sister.(-:

Nice streaming passion, Pam. Did he lick a public coffee spoon, or was it the spoon he was using on the kitchen counter at home?

Don't answer that--but if I ever catch that yokel licking the butter knife...it's over.


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia Author

LOL! I hear you randslam, a coffee spoon is one thing, but a butter knife is so far over the line that it's insane! ;) lmao!

Thanks noorin! I really appreciate it. :) I have to admit that when I was writing this, I became irritated with the character's pain over this lost (almost) love, so I felt the need to end it and give it a quick turn. lol! ;)

Hah, this cracked me up. I have quit loving men because they made eating noises, but I never thought about licking the coffee spoon! I have NOT EVER seen anyone do that, and WHY would someone do that? Great work with the ironic twist, Pam.


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 6 years ago from Virginia Author

parkercoleman, what a wonderful question. It was an action that stunned me and stuck long enough to incorporate into a diddy like this, so it's truly significant! It's right up there with licking the mustard or mayo knife. He must have been the type who did that too. It's a good thing our relationship never made it that far, and thank goodness he stood me up for that dinner date because the eating noises you mention on top of all the spoon and knife licking would have driven me over the edge. That would have been a novel. ;)

Thanks for coming in to read. :)

Ice blue eyes, licking darn spoons and playing an organ will do it all the time to a dude. I hope he was at least wearing his cowboy boots. I don't lick spoons, but I suppose sticking my finger in a peanut jar is just as bad, oops. You put a smile on this Saddle's kisser, loved it. Caressed all your Up buttons:0)


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 5 years ago from Virginia Author

Now that you mention it saddlerider, cowboy boots might have made everything okay! :) Sticking your finger in a peanut butter jar is cute! Spoon licking when you're not wearing cowboy boots is barbaric. Ugh. Thank you for taking the time to read and for putting a huge smile on my face! :)

It may be typical of a woman to think like this, but men just don't understand it's those little things that make us hate them so easily and forget they exist soon after. Great write, made me chuckle.


Pam Roberson profile image

Pam Roberson 5 years ago from Virginia Author

Lol true that! And the strange thing, to me, is that we tend to let those little things slide until the relationship goes very wrong or bad, then licking spoons suddenly becomes intolerable. Thanks for reading this one.

ROFLMAO!

Okay, my wife (also a Pam) gets her own coffee spoon, and no, neither of us licks it. Me, I'm just too lazy to mess with a spoon and don't take sugar, so: Half & half first, coffee on top, and good to go.

But...don't believe I've ever SEEN a home, or a restaurant, where you didn't get your own coffee spoon...

Huh.
