You Didn’t See Me

When I saw you
I thought
Could we
Make a life
Together, Happily
We laughed
Shared the same heart
Missed each other
When apart
Not thinking
Our lips met
Reluctantly parting
And yet
I think
You didn’t see me.

Don’t Tell Him

Don’t tell him I think about him as much as I do
He might get the wrong impression
Don’t tell him he makes me smile
Or his scent is my obsession.

Don’t tell him I’m smitten
It’s just a crush
Don’t tell him from afar, my heart swells a little
It’s too much.

Don’t tell him I find him unbearably attractive
He already knows he’s handsome
Don’t tell him he’s kidnapped my heart
He’ll hold it for ransom.

Don’t tell him I like to kiss (a lot)
He’ll attempt to make me swoon
Don’t tell him I’m catching feelings
It’s too soon.

Don’t tell him you think we make a cute couple
Because we do
Don’t tell him I dreamed about us already
He’ll think I’m crazy, too.

Author’s Note: For Shane. He knows.

With Another

You think he’s so present
As he turns off his phone
Holding you, your attention
Surely he’s yours alone.

You think you’re so special
As late night he slips in
Then sleeps in so sweetly
Next night he does it again.

With another.

Author’s Note: Too many tales of infidelity lately… This was the trick of my narcissist, unfaithful ex-husband. Beware.

Back It Up

Just know that I want you back
Hurry before I slip through the cracks
I don’t know where I’m going
I can’t stand this plateauing
I don’t want to hear you
I just want to feel you
I don’t care what you say
Except you’re coming my way
Send chills down my spine
Skin on skin smoothly divine
Rumbling through my soul
Present with no goal
I so deserve this
Weightless bliss
All my boxes checked
Until we feel perfect

Did I say I want you back?
I meant I want you on your back.

Author’s Note: It’s hump day.

Attraction is Whack

Interest does not equal commitment.
Repeat to yourself until you understand this.
And can act on it without falling.

Author’s Note: Attraction is a more dangerous drug than crack. Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.
