This Friend with Benefits

Criss crossed into irregular patterns.
Bright colors reverberating off their bodies,
Blue to yellow to red.
Emotions and passions flair up
Like fireworks on the 4th.

Thud. Thud. Thud.
Walking across hardwood floors.
The stench of smoke
Making a stomach churn
Making the butterflies scatter
Making the heartbeat slow.

In this place.

It was a moment.
A lapse in judgement maybe.
One that I gave into.
Because of my “daddy issues”
Or maybe  a bad breakup.
I made bad choices with him,
This “friend with benefits.”
