Sex

She is
Supposed
To kiss him now
But
She thinks about
  Cleaning her house
    She thinks about
      Anything else
        She thinks about
          Why she can't just
            Embrace this and
Kiss him
  She thinks about
    Being out of milk
      She thinks about
        The weather
          She had better
            Wear a dress
              But not too short
               Or it will lead to
This
  She thinks about
Kiss him
  She thinks about
    Why she must
      Wander
        Why she must
          Wonder
            Why she can't just
Kiss him
  She thinks about
     Herself
       Introspection
         It is her fault
          Anyway
           She thinks about
             That day
               She thinks about
Kiss him
Now
  She thinks about
     Trying
       She thinks about
         Dying
           She thinks about
             Anything else
She thinks about

I think this is great! (And dare I say, so true...) I found it thanks to it being voted Poem of the Week and I look forward to reading more of your work.

clever format taking us through a sort of resistance . The truth is so often different from the perception of bliss. A complete passion killer of a poem Hallielle.
