the extended glances happened many times too often
for extraordinary ideas not to blossom in his head
a year of those tight pants wore his inhibition thin
there's no reason not to it might ruin everything
it's a notion so crazy that it might not work

and now each night there are two beds to chose from
and the idle thoughts of previous
have become the norm
all the physical aspects live up to their claims
feelings to consider but it's just a game
that good friends never seem to make any rules to

I knew you once by your first name
and now by your smell
since there is a secret
that we love not to tell
and I'm sorry for my curiosity
in certain situations
I should smile to my self and proceed with discretion

"maybe it's just a form of self defense"
he mused to himself
or perhaps the attraction is stronger than he thinks
the knots in his stomach
mark off each correspondence
the day draws nearer when he'll come to his home
and courtesy finds itself distasteful

now she's putting in the spermicide
but do not bother to decide
if you are the best
or simply the next
