She first appeared to me
Tuesday morning.
Running on two hours
of rest in bed
I thought maybe
my eyes were playing tricks
when she walked into my
Physics class nude.

“Isn't it great?” she said.
“You always wanted me to
be for your eyes only.”
This isn't what I had in mind.

Wednesday and Thursday
she was nowhere in sight.
I had taken double the dose
of sleeping pills and thought
maybe she wouldn't come back.
I woke up to her face this morning.

Followed me around the house
as I got ready for school.
Told me the last button of my
shirt was crooked and helped me fix it.
I swear I'm not taking any real drugs,
I've been clean for weeks.

While I crouch down to pick up my marbles,
she extends a helping hand.

The marbles bit had me rolling on the floor. I really dig this. Poetic without sounding like a standard poem.
