Leaving a friend’s house,
Feeling your phone buzz,
Looking at the text on the screen:
“Should have stuck around for dessert ????”
Feeling sick to your stomach,
Walking a little faster,
Creating distance between you
And him.

Dancing at a party,
Spinning as fast as your head,
Kissing a boy who says:
“Why don’t you come back to my place?”
Backing away slowly,
Running to your friends,
Creating distance between you
And him.

Crying in your room,
Asking him why he would do this,
Tasting his words in the air:
“You’re just not what I’m looking for.”
Watching him walk away,
Closing the door behind him,
Creating distance between him
And you.
