it is you

after a long walk
he turns to you, but you walk past
you don’t want to know what lies below
hidden in his eyes, his smile
hidden in the way he touches your back
your arms
your neck
the way he changes his day
to fit you in
his over-enthusiasm for all you give him
you don’t want to see that truth
to know it, acknowledge it
all you want is a good time
and he gives it
willingly
he gives it
abundantly
but underneath – you know – he knows
he wants so much more
and you can’t give it to him
but he still hangs around
because he still doesn’t understand the meaning of ‘no’
