My Best Friend's Wife

Post by preston » Sat Apr 19, 2003 9:04 am

a sunday evening scene
vintage 60’s linoleum and chrome kitchen table
fig newtons and minute maid lemonade
my best friend’s wife, 6 months pregnant

she tells me all those things she’ll tell no one else
what a jerk he is
how he hasn’t touched her for 3 1/2 months now
the things she does on those lonely afternoons
to satisfy her desires
“pregnant women have desires too”
way more than i want to hear

i can only sit and listen
caught between divided loyalties
it could be him across the table
tortilla chips and michelob
telling me what a bitch she is

then,
on bended knee beside her
she takes my hand
places it up under her shirt
skin to skin
smooth and warm

we wait
there !
"did you feel her ?"
a faint electric spark
raising the hair on the back of my neck
there !
again and again
three time’s the charm
her excitement is infectious
the first time all afternoon i've heard her laugh
seen her smile

a soft amber glow surrounds her
the light of the life within
or merely the touch of the evening sun

i want to tell her how beautiful she is
how motherhood suits her
if he doesn’t know, he’s a fool

i step out of the scene
and watch us from across the room

curtains rustling in the evening breeze
the sweep of headlights cross the room
voices in the distance

Oh say can you see
what’s wrong with this picture ?

By the twilight’s last gleaming
nothing, nothing at all
friends of spirit
nothing more

my only fantasy
shamefully self indulgent
a phone call one sunday morning
“will you be our daughter’s god father ?”

a call which never came

Once again, a great little foray into your mind.
I felt every emotion, and even felt the baby stir thru your words. Aw...Pres, you can be my kids Godfather if you want. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Preston, I loved this story! Definatly agree that you can feel the emotions in this one. I really don't have any complaints about how Toby has been with me pregnant, but I have known women that have been miserable like this. Awsome awsome story! I probably glow most when I feel Abbey kick me, even though that's all the time, its a wonderful and unusual feeling to know that there is a life inside you kicking and squirming around. I can always count on you to write good stuff for pregnant people!!!!
