Creative Writing

he said, she said

he thinks, she feels,
both true, but what’s real,
he rations his passion,
she wants to make love ever-lasting,
he yearns, she sighs,
reading the wrong signs in his eyes,
he makes clear his intentions,
but to herself she lies,
he prays for the one,
but she’s already sprung,
he counts the days till the end,
she feels they’ve only just begun…
