I couldn't believe
what was happening.
If I hadn't gone out
as Hayleye tonight
I wouldn't be
in the backseat of
my friend's car
pressed against the seat
with a drunken version
of him in the front seat.

He was completely drunk,
I reasoned with myself,

But he'll never do anything,

Will he?

Even though these thoughts

Were comforting to a degree
still the fear set in
when he pulled up to his house
and pulled me inside.
