don't touch me:

we hugged for 37 seconds
i felt my blood rush from me to you and back again

46 heart beats hounding against each-other
'i win'
'no, i win'
i heard them fight about who's louder
and they kept on beating louder

you put your arm around my waist
and felt my skin for 6 seconds max
you held me like a trophy
your hand movement was too delicate
like maybe you were dusting off a feather

i felt a twitch in your leg
and a shake back from mine
my body was crying:
'don't touch me'

i gently shrug back
and i could see your eyes
light up
and you could tell i felt comfortable
you simply smudged my face with:
'intimacy issues'
