My skin feels too tight

I'm hot and I'm cold

I'm relaxed but uncomfortable

Sweaty with goose bumps

Shaky and a little out of breath

Hyper and bouncing off the walls

Feeling all jumbled up

Cheeks flushed

Excitement or shame

Close my eyes but they flick back open

Lost in a daydream

Feels a lot like real life

Unsettling and grounding


And I remember you

Heartbeats and slippery fingers

On my back, stomach, face

Him, her, someone I've yet to meet

Reality melding with a dream

Of the future

Of today

Or yesterday
