Wishing for a Boy Next Door. ~ Ashleigh Hitchcock {poem}


The Key’s in the Mailbox.

The songwriter,

who stays out all night.

Leaves the light on,

forgetting his key in the lock.


She sneaks next door,

slips his key out

and peeks through the keyhole.

She adores what she spies.

She’s been hankering

for a next door lover.


Her wish is granted,

when he catches her in the act.

He tugs her inside

and what he gives her

is surprisingly, naughtier

than her wet daydreams.


He pours his words into

her listening presence.

Her heart song is

music to his ears.


He frequents her back door

as well.

To “borrow” a cup

of something sweet.


He uses her for inspiration


she grins because

her love-life is hot and wild.
