The Red Nightgown

January 2nd, 2023

A Monday afternoon
Our lunchtime liaison
I was waiting for you
With my red nightgown on
The time ticked away
No message on my phone
I was waiting for you
But I sat there alone
The time came and went
You apologized at dusk
I was waiting for you
And then you killed the lust

Dancing Around The Situation(ship)

December 28th, 2022

I followed your lead
What a disappointment
Thinking you might change
But another canceled appointment
Dancing around the situation
Never to commit
Not even faking friendship
I guess that’s a benefit
I kept my walls up
I never crossed the line
But I have to let go
Of something never mine
So here I say goodbye
To what this could have been
You could never be who I need
So I’ll start all over again

Was There Even An Us?

December 23rd, 2022

I wanted you to take me on that stupid date
Where I could wear my new dress
But you asked if we could stay in instead
And we had fun nonetheless
I wanted to get naked with you
But not the kind without clothes
I’d tell you the details of my life
That nobody else knows
I wanted consistency from you
The one thing you asked of me
But you’d cancel, postpone, and even no-show
Us ending was easy to foresee
