I played the innocent again today.
Don't worry, I did not put on a display.
It was subtle, brilliant some would say.
It happened when Jim got his hypospray.
I could have waited my turn.
But, I needed to feel his skin, that slow burn.
It is something I crave, I yearn.
But I am a fool, I shall never learn.
It lasted for only moments so few.
I would give so much, to be one with you.
But I am pleased to be friends too.
So my secret stays, there is nothing else I can do.
I hold on to the memory of your touch again.
Playing in my mind as a sweet refrain.
I close my eyes and that moment shall remain.
Permanently etched in my brain.
