she pretends

she pretends
she doesn’t care
if he smiles her way
she pretends
she doesn’t feel
that heat flushing her skin
she pretends
she’s unaffected
when he says her name
she pretends
she can wait
until he takes her hand
she pretends
she doesn’t shiver
when he whispers in her ear
she pretends
she doesn’t need
more than a momentary thrill

Even three day weekends like the one I just had go by too quickly. Alas. But the good thing is that I have one full week of work then another three day weekend followed by four days of work then another three day weekend. Glorious! :D
