I hold my head in my hands
You were perfection to me
I worked hard to impress you.
Worked late, worked weekends
Was I being carefully scrutinized?
I had no idea that you felt anything for me
I revered your knowledge and your position
I modeled my work after you.
I never expected
Being pulled so close to you
You wrapped your fingers through my hair
I fought you to release me
You weren’t free to be mine
You wouldn’t let go
You weren’t allowed to do this
Your mouth captured mine
You belonged to another
And took total possession
I wanted to enjoy this
I began to acquiesce
Even for a few short seconds
I couldn’t look at you
I was breathless and flushed
All I could do was run
Emotions are crushing
There I sat with my head in my hands
And my tears on the floor
Regrets have lasted a lifetime
