The way you look in that dress - Abby Carpenter

I tell myself to like boys

But the way you look in that dress has overtaken my thoughts

The way it skips along your thighs

Inviting me to dance

The way in cinches at your waste

Calling me to wrap my arms around you


I tell myself to smile when boys talk to me

I encourage my heart beat to quicken when they hold my hand

But all I can think of is the way you look in that dress

The way it shows of the skin on your shoulders

The way your skin would feel under the soft pads of my fingertips

The way your hair falls down like a canopy

Beckoning for me to come closer


I tell myself that we can just be friends

But the way you look in that dress tell me friends will never be enough

I tell myself this is wrong

But how can the way I feel be wrong?

How can the butterflies that start in my stomach and erupt through my whole body be wrong?

How can the way you look in that dress

be wrong?
