your hands roam over
my skin like submarines
searching for specimens
that could be interesting

i peel my eyes back
to look at your face-
panting and sighing,
you look nothing like
i thought this would be

where are the shivers,
the undeniable feeling?

all i feel is confused,
a bit hungry,
but what will you do
when you realize
i've got nothing?

Excellent use of the rhetorical question at the end.
