In Between - Poem by Charmaine Williams

In Between

My, oh my, I hope this feeling will last.
I don’t ever recall feeling this way in the past.
I find myself giggling like a teenager and acting very coy.
I’m talking about the time when a girl firsts meets a boy.

It’s that moment between friendship and intimacy
When you both yearn for each other with such intensity.
The point in the relationship where everyday is a sunny day
It doesn’t matter if it’s snowy December or rainy May.

The “getting to know you” stage.
Each other’s mistakes unknown, and you both start on a new page.
The possibilities of what can be written are endless.
Those pages can be filled with laughter, romance and bliss.

How refreshing it is to have a new friend.
I wish I could capture this moment in a bottle,
That way I would never let it end.

Although my emotions are raging,
I’m trying not to move too fast.
My mother told me slower is always better
I’ve learned from relationships in the past.

Experience has taught me everything changes with sex
I hope you get the message I’m trying to make in this text.

Boys, learn how to make love to her mind before making love to her body
Girls, don’t give it up so quickly just because he thinks you’re a hottie.

Thinking about becoming intimate and what that would mean
I decided to take my time and enjoy the moment “In Between”.
