Fill in the Blank

You make me want to

You make me want to fill in the blanks

I tell you I had fun tonight, casually

and you look at me

1000 watt smile

mooney eyed and scandalously earnest

I look away to preserve your propriety

“I like you” you say and it feels like

Grazing a game trap with my bare fingers

Feels like accidentally leaving worn panties

on top of the pile of clothes at the gynecologist’s

Feels like pinching a candle out for the first time

or missing the top step on the way down a flight of stairs

Why do your eyes glow like that (why am I looking)

Is that my reflection twinkling back at me?

or are you what pulls my heart to crash

Thunderously against the shore

I think I could like you (I like ***)

I think I could **** you (you scare me)
