All Apologies #43

I owe you all sorts of apologies.
I haven’t been able
to act the same around you
since we ate that apple
and I learned the truth.
In truth,
we got along really well
at first
only because I didn’t know any better.
I lacked appropriate knowledge.
I lived in ignorance
but now with the fruit consumed,
I look at you with lust in my heart
along with many other parts.

Since that night
it is difficult to look at you
without staring
to be near you
without touching
to enter your orbit
without gravitating ever closer
to your celestial form.

It is impossible these days
to have a conversation with you
where I can maintain composure
and not
Say something stupid
or woo-full.

I am awkward around you always
and have been
every day
since you showed me what I was missing.
I have not been the same
since Halloween
and that cat suit.
