i lay on the grass

a mosquito lands beside me

it climbs up my leg

and begins to bite

i jump

and go to swat it away

but i stop myself

i’ve never felt a mosquito bite before

so i let my new friend bite away

basking in the pain

experiencing something entirely new

and foreign

he flies away, and i’m disappointed

as i realize

there was nothing there

it was just a bite

~

i rest in the park

the boy i long for beside me

his hand on my leg

he lets me kiss him

i’m nervous

and hesitate for a bit

but i finally do it

i’ve never had a real kiss before

he should push me away

but he lets me

and i feel overwhelmed when our lips

finally touch

he leaves that night, i’m disappointed

he did me a favor

there was nothing there

it was only a kiss
