sneak peek

I wonder where we would be
if I met you any sooner.
We would have had our first kiss,
or maybe we wouldn’t have.
If I met you any later,
you might be gone by now.
You’re sad still, but so am I.
Regardless of my
not so recent heart break.

I liked that you peeked.
I like that you wanted to sneak
a look at me, to listen to me.
You asked questions about me.
Stuck around your room for me.

And I felt a wave of sadness
sweep over me when you gave me
maybe’s and possibly’s.
But I’m grateful now
knowing you didn’t lie.
Didn’t fill me with false hope
of many more nights to come.
It’ll either happen or it won’t.
And you’ve prepared me for that.

But the nicest is when
it’s over and done
and we aren’t working up
to finishing up our pleasure.
And we lie, fully relaxed
before sleep claims us.
I run my fingers over
your smooth skin
and hope that I help you
even if it’s only a little
to feel whole again.
