Mistaken Temptation


That night I left work

I was scared

I knew something bad was going to happen

I took a cab to his house


When I got there

We went to his room and started drinking

The room was rocking as we were kissing intensely

The room was spinning


He kissed me here

Touched me there.

I couldn't handle the temptation.

We fucked.


That's all it was 

That's all it ever will be

But now I'm nervous

He didn't wear a rubber


I can't sleep with the thought

That there might be a little creature

Slowly growing inside me

My eyes are peeled in the dark night


How could I have made such a mistake

My life - his life - our lives

Could be ruined

What if I really am... pregnant?
