in retrospect

Posted to Poetry




i wasn't expecting
to miss you
this much

you caught me
completely off guard,
like a child
sneaking cookies,
i snuck affection
only to catch myself
in the act

except that,
like the cookie
that's missing a bite,
it's too late
to pretend that
i didn't fall
under your spell

and that
we didn't kiss
that night
in the dark
and that
the next morning
i didn't want
that moment back
