For James, who is too young
I wish I knew what you were thinking, James.
We go to the same gym. You told me your name a few weeks ago. I think maybe you were hitting on me that day, like you did another day, months ago.
You KNOW I think you're attractive because I let you know exactly what I thought, one Saturday afternoon... But you do know I'm old enough to be your mother, right???
That's why I'm too shy to talk to you, that's why I don't hold your eye contact, that's why I sneak looking at you every chance I get but then I look away, and most of all this is why I don't initiate anything else with you. I can't help but look at you because you're SO BEAUTIFUL but you're too young for me, James. And I could get in trouble if anyone found out.
I wish I could tell you to come and see me when you're legal age, James. Oh, the things I wish I could DO to you!
But the worst part of all, James...I'm married. You're forbidden fruit in so many ways, gorgeous boy.
