It’s Hypnotic.
Judging people based on appearance
Like we were always told not to do.
Judging people by how good
Their face would look
Between my thighs

I lost my virginity
To a man I met online.
I made my so-called sexual debut
With a stranger.

No feelings attached
Just lust and judgement
Get to know me?
Maybe.
We’ll see.

I have no regrets
It’s just sex.
I’ve been intimate before
With people I loved.
Sex just never happened.

It’s just a comment
On the state of
Dating
Living
Loving
Today. With just a flick of your finger
You can send anyone away.

One thought on “Strike a Match

  1. This is powerful. If you were looking to make it even more powerful, you could add in specific experiences or moments, if even just one sentence depicting a memory (be it real or fiction). This is your poem though, it’s strong enough on it’s own.
