almost like going steady

Posted to Action Poetry

she didn't really wake up
as she'd been awake most of the night
not sleeping because of the
person beside her
he shifted and moved closer
but she just moved away
so when he asked if it was ok
to leave
'of course' was the immediate answer
she thought he sounded a bit hurt
maybe she was supposed to pretend
maybe he wanted to stay
she sighed, too tired to play the game
but still, when the ligts came up
she saw the watch he forgot
and slipped it on her wrist
and felt a slight tug of possesion
