Shay Moore

You give me chills, give because

I still have them.

I had begun to know feelings

as a distant memory,

until you drove them to my house

on our first date.

Still not sure how

you snuck those on me.

Maybe you slipped them

in my pocket

when you opened the car door

for me.

Maybe you seasoned them

into the tater tots we shared

while I was nervously

checking my makeup.

Maybe you smeared them on your lips before our

goodnight kiss.

Either way, here we are

3 months later

I sit in this rocking chair

Watching you play video games

as I swell with love.
