Date Night

Posted on Posted in Wonder

The perfect gentleman,

picked me up at 7 pm, with a hug

letting me whine about rains

as the setting sun slowly

warmed my heart, in your car


But you don’t really care,

did you?

About where I spent my childhood,

about the passion in my voice

as I spoke about synapses being beautiful


All you wanted, needed,

was my body under yours,

smitten, trusting your sincere eyes

your hands on my breasts

as I surrendered in counterfeit comfort


Heady and lightheaded,

in minutes I’m out again,

hair as unkempt as thoughts

in the silence of the dark

the drizzle was back

  1. You know the worst part about this piece? How relatable it is. I am not trying to target men. Dating is weird, we always know what we want out of a relationship but never bother understanding the other person.

    1. It’s so difficult. I try to never play a game. But some people (men and women) don’t do the same. And that’s what complicates everything. And I’m so tired of just being needed for some exotic sex.
