I wish you wouldn't make it look so hard
or I would have a better time making myself
irresistible. (but maybe I am not resist(ing))
because I forgot our under .stand .ing.
because I got busy standing under your light
and any sudden shift just makes it feel
a lot less real. (I think we should stop
whatever it is we're doing.)

but say, for a moment, that perhaps
I am not exactly being oppressed
but rather repressed. and that's one
of the reasons why I don't say it
is because I will mean it.
