the ones before I started

I did not hesitate in falling for you the first time….

I wasn’t yet filled with doubt about how good you would feel, how good we would feel together

my desire for you, your desire for my

kisses and body laid in your bed –

were unencumbered

but now, after cycling through too many times

I’m afraid to say, my sweet dear –

We cannot parlay our initial lust into future nights
