Live with intention. walk to the edge. listen hard. practice wellness. play with abandon. laugh. choose with no regret. continue to learn. appreciate your friends. do what you love. live as if this is all there is. -Mary Anne Rabmacher

He told me he wanted to put it behind us
But that look in his eye I can’t soon forget
Still I feel hands and lips on my chest and then lips crushed against mine
My chin is still red from his stubble
I feel different
Do I look different?
Girls are so soft
You just want to pop them
But my throat is still dry from the day before
I have had bottles of water but thirst remains
He said it felt incestuous-
we were such close friends
And I feel the same
I do not love him, that way
Nor do I think I ever did
And if he speaks the truth then he feels the same
I don’t want to lose our friendship to this
He keeps me grounded here
He is the only one I have
I do not rely on him for much though
I never thought about his lips that way
It was fun
Maybe more than it should have been
I felt there was nothing to lose
There was nothing to fear
But I do not want to be with him
Or for this to happen again
I see him only as a friend
He was such a good one
It would be heartbreaking for that to end over this
But the moment of weakness
Is lasting more than a moment
And I haven’t seen him yet today
And I can’t decide if I want to
Because if I feel his eyes on mine
I’ll feel them everywhere else
