Instinct & Delusion - Poem by Richard Steinmueller

Instinctual feelings tell me,
That I should be physical.
Inside my head I’m telling myself,
That this moment is critical.
Desperately yet delicately,
Looking for another option.
I’m afraid I’ll ruin us if I,
Run my hand up your thigh.
I’m afraid you’ll turn away if I,
Push my lips into yours.
The connection seems so sweet,
Though I’m not sure if it would satisfy.
Electricity and simplicity of what’s,
Going on inside.
Perfect angles and lighting,
Gives me perfect view.
Of each and every potential,
Sequential position for you.
If you push away,
I might pull.
Well I might just pull too hard.
These tendencies,
May be the death of us both.
If we wait any longer,
If we pretend this isn’t real.
If you stare at me with those eyes,
And tell me,
This isn’t what you wanted,
All along.
