This was after I had convinced myself to hook up with a 'sort of' friend, he was attractive and yeah...

There's a fan overhead
but he turned it off
and i'm starting to wonder
just what he's thinking.
my palms are sweaty
and my heart speeds up
i can't believe
that i agreed to this meeting.

stop,think,think some more.
figdet,twitch, twitch again.
shake, blink, "stop it now!"
his hands moving slowly down.

I'm not ready, I can't think.
He's got me cornered we're on the brink.
whats he saying? "just calm down?"
I told you once, I just want out.

He's on the floor.
I'm out the door.
I should have stopped it long before.
now here I am,
once again.
starting over the painful game.

I'm not big on it, it's okay. But I'm not big on censoring myself most of what I post is unedited.
