Boundaries

I’ve been telling myself
next time
instead of plunging head first
I’ll take it slow

Step by step
keeping my heart
in line, in check

No more going out of bounds
pacing slowly, taking time
not crossing any lines

How do you not play games
without being outright
without putting all your cards on the stand

Not saying too many words
no appearance of eagerness
not revealing so much so soon

How much I want to
leap right in
for something to last
and not beginning a script
with an end in sight

Because the last time I took it slow
nothing ever happened

Sometimes
taking it slow
turns into
nothing at all
