Lovesick

A poem by Tamoha Siddiqui 

i have become your little lovesick chihuahua

over the span of a spring time romance


room to room I follow you;

the trail of your thoughts,

the turning of your heart,

and the gaze of your desires

at other bitches in heat


day by day I long for you;

lifting my fragile head

from a cushioned marriage

jerking at the slightest footstep

of a text or a searching look

in my feeble direction.


but you no longer come home

to pat my hair

or sort out my tangles.


you only take them in your fist

like a tight leash

when we make love


and the rhythm is only punctured

by the intermittent moans

of a dying feminist
