Hooking Up

It happened on a sunny August day.
“That feels amazing,” you said between breaths.
I took you in my mouth and knew.
That moment I knew happiness.
I felt it, in my heart,
in my hand; in my mouth,
I tasted pure happiness.

We won’t tell anyone.
Afterwards we hugged.

It surpises me how much it never happened.
Your wife doesn’t know.
Yet, each time I see you I want more.
It pains me to see you act like we’re still just friends.

Now there is an elephant in the room.
A big, pink elephant.
