you didn't.

i took it to heart
when you held my cheeks
and your lips
bloomed
like a delicate spring
against mine.

when you fell asleep
beside me
and our calves
slightly pressed
together
like tiny cricket legs
playing music
by the river.

when you slipped your hand
nonchalantly
into mine
like a cat rubs
against a leg
hinting
the need
to feel loved
or perhaps fed.

when you smiled
and told me
even though it was wrong
for two unlikely people
such as ourselves
to feel this way
you didn’t care
what anybody
had to say.

i took it to heart.
i took it to heart.
i took it to heart.

you didn’t.

you didn't.
