I have imagined your eyes full of nervousness as we lean into a kiss

I have seen your eyes looking deep into mine and I have seen the simmering lakes

I have sinned.

I have touched your hands for more than just a brief sweet minute

I have wanted to feel your hands tough my arm, my back, and my knee

I have sinned.

I have stared at the corners of your lips as you smile at an insult I hurl your way

I have dreamed of the curve of your's meeting the curve of mine

I have sinned.

I have looked at your golden locks and wondered how soft they are

I have watched you shake your head as your hair blocks your line of sight

I have sinned for you are a guy.

A guy who may or may not like me, but a guy that I haven't been able to get out of my head for years.

A guy who gets me and who has a way of making me feel special even when all I want to do is cry.

A guy who barely knows me but who I desperatly want to know.

A guy who cares about all that I care about, but who probably doesn't care about me.

And a guy who, if he took a chance, I'd willingly give my heart to- he'd have no need to steal it.

I have sinned.
