the first thing

didn’t seem to notice the way
that they _________ when your
eyes met theirs…didn’t seem to
notice it at all.

didn’t think about anything except
their beautiful ________ & their
sexy _______ & all in all,
the butterflies roamed free in the 
stomach, making what seemed to be
a mundane life before,
exciting now.

as the frequency of your rendezvous 
began to increase, the heart rates 
pitter-pattered faster & faster,
told all your friends, family, started to
invest larger portions of your time
to each other &
then
it 
happened.

remember the first time that they had
_________?  you don’t, really, because
when it happened first, you ignored it, or
perhaps your whole body/mind were so
overcome with their presence & the 
newness of the thing that in the moment
_________ never really bothered you at
all.

but now, now that the 
“magic” 
is dwindling, 
this thing, this
_________,
which seemed like nothing before,
seems like the first in a series of dominoes
bent on the inevitable destruction of
something that had been established solely on
the grounds of 
desperation.
