One too many

Embarrassing, awkward situations:


The smile and wave

In your direction

Meant for the one behind you


Then there's the:

"Wanna catch a movie sometime?"

Then after you reply

They add,

"Oh, I meant just to hang out,

As friends"

And as soon as the sound

Collides with your eardrums,

Red blooms across you face;

You wish for anything,

Anything, to end your existence.


The moment you say too much,

Or say the wrong words,

Or for some reason you

Can't. Stop. Talking.

Internal facepalm.



Hey, Scriptor!

Writer of my life!

I need to know

What to say, to do,

But you seem to have forgotten

To give me a copy of the script.
