commitment issues at their best (you coward)
- such a scared little boy.

what made you hesitate
that one summer night?
you remember the one -
your fingers were oh so
close to my thigh, (and
you knew it too) & your
breath was oh so hot in
my ear and your tongue
was ohso clumsy in your
mouth as you stuttered
over your words like the
teenaged boy you were.
& now i'm curious -what
made you think i would
not return the gesture?
& what was it that made
you second guess the
way you asked me softly
if i wanted to get outta
there. because, really, i
was sure you could hear
the frantic hammering in
my chest - and surely you
could hear the nervous
stutter in my voice when
i said that yes, i would
follow you wherever you
wanted to go. and now
i'm curious as to why you
never called me again -
why you just let it drop -
why you turned your head
and acted like my smile
was something you could
not stand to see anymore.
what was it that made you
give up on us? and why
is it that your laughter can
still do to me what it did
to me that beautiful night
so very long ago? & why
is it that when i look
you in the eye, i
feel like you're
wondering
the exact
same
