Vulnerable

Attractive with a slight
sarcastic smile
I don’t mind.
I think it’s protecting
whatever lives
inside your heart.
I was too drunk to talk
but we did anyway,
laughing and sharing
only stories that
should stay buried.
It doesn’t matter.
We won’t remember anyway.
That night, I couldn’t
fall asleep alone.
The cold air crept
under the covers.
