Random Poem:

She's a dot dot dot...

Don’t move
Stay tight
Pressed against the wall
She’ll get a jab
When you blink your eyes
Too slow
Then she’ll seal you up with words
When you act
Like she doesn’t affect you anymore
She’ll brush her lips across your neck
Knows it drives you wild
Gives you the chills when you
Breathe her in
And hold her in your chest
But then she’ll let go
Like she’s offended
That you held her too long
She can smell you down the hall
Or on people who steal your scent
She’ll let you know to make you smile
Or hold her eyes on you
Just one second longer
Make you shiver  from her bitterness
Like it’s still December
When it’s almost June.
She can lie
Disguise her heart for black
But she couldn’t hide
Those eyes
Even though she tries
Can’t she tell you know
The way she works by now
She’s a dot dot dot…
Never a period .
She’s got you again.
