eye contact signifies

attraction

so don't look at him

look;

so much else to look at

but the sound of his voice pulls

like a hook

and the smell of his skin

cuts like a knife-

so stare

there are whole planets in your stare

like

"i would be whatever you want me to be if i could"

and

"why can't you just love me, anyway?"

nowhere in your stare

are the words

"i deserve a bit better,"

and

"you can not treat me this way."

your taste in men is disgusting

but by then she liked him – maybe too much
