Teasing

Dedication: To Anna for the years of torment wanting you.

Teasing

Why did I let you tease me?
Why did I love you through five years of torment?
I used to ask myself if you would ever say yes to love.
And then you did.
We shared a heartbeat of our lifetime together in lust.
So tell me now my once friend once lover
Why did I love you more as the teasing friend
Than I did when the teasing had ended?
After all this time, I still love you
My friend.
