Things I love to look at


-light pink roses
-second hand books
-you
-notebooks

you were walking around
with grey shorts
and blue sunglasses
your chest was bare
I pretended I did not know you
but how
your presence disturbed me
still I wanted you to stay close
closer
you entered my bedroom
like a knight
and stood around
to challenge anyone
that came in your way
of me.
