She Comes in Close, Pauses Like This

she comes in close

pauses like this

mid-joke, by your face

breath slows, the kiss

doesn't happen

as she sets it back

now you're thinking

what's she thinkin'?

when she does things

those things like that

_

that night she came up

to my room, on my bed

but I knew what it was

why it was that she was

she didn't expect the quiet hall

the vacant floor, life dead

she needed a buffer, anyone

I was found and well, I'm one

this didn't happen 'cause of a crush

we're nowhere near any form of love

are we getting closer?

my room mate's asleep

is she getting closer?

she's leaning on me

I just felt like heading out

I'll do anything to just get out

she doesn't want to see her boyfriend

oh, did I mention she has a man?

_

I'm sitting across the table

her slender hand jokingly taps

bare knuckles, more than fingers react

I reach over and tap her hand back

_

I don't get the joke, I just laugh

look at her, smile, and laugh

I don't know what's going on, I just laugh

look at her, smile, and laugh

_

"I'm getting cold" she said,

an obvious hint I didn't see

we stand outside her place

"it's cold outside" she said

it seems she wanted me

when I thought she wanted me

to leave
