It's just a phase

The feel of her lips on mine.

"It's just a phase"

I try to block out all feelings I have for her.

"It's just a phase"

I look away as she moves toward me,

Filled with longing to hold her.

"It's just a phase"

I keep telling myself it'll go away.

"It's just a phase"

I pray to the Lord asking him to forgive me for this sin.

"It's just a phase"

I dream about the way her narrow hips move when she walks

"It's just a phase"

The way her brown eyes sparkle when she's excited

"It's just a phase"

I imagine kissing her with such fervor as if the world might collapse around us

"It's just a phase"

I don't understand why I feel this way

And I'm scared.

Me
