she said my words tore away at her. i wasn't looking at her eyes at the time. she made me look. pain!, yes she wanted me to see her pain. instead, i imagined her naked. imagined her left hand moving towards her nipple. her right hand she said held her face turned around. because, that is how i made her feel. i pretended to listen. i didn't hold her. i didn't speak. still, i had sex with her. afterward she looked sad and i felt something. i think. no. i'm sure. it made me feel i felt as if i had violated her. i felt like i should say sorry. I didn't, the sex was good. 22~12~2014 With Love Maurice Yvonne
