Alone

Laughter
Fingers tickle
Hands link
Simple flirtation
On the couch
In front of the TV

Groping hands
Shower long since cold
Tile on my back
Legs wrap around you Pull you closer
Thrusting tongues
Dueling bodies
Ragged breath
Animalistic desire

That’s how it began
Except there was no happy ending
You got what you wanted
I got nothing but innocence lost
Knowledge that my parents would be so ashamed
Phone bills to pay
Used condoms to throw away

But last night
Alone in the dark
I would have taken it back
Just to be held
Just to be kissed
Just to be flirted with
Just so I was not
Alone.
