#filterlysspoetry: "fight or flight"

I was with

someone

last night,

trying to get over you.

Not sure why

I ever

let you go.

I was approached by

another someone

last night,

trying to get home.

Not sure why

I ever was

alone.

I was scared

to death

last night,

thinking

fight or flight.

Alive or dead.

I don't know,

just

you and me.

Fight or flight

came and went

last night,

out like a light.

I was scared,

running for my car,

reaching for the door.

The second

I found myself

safe

last night,

my fingers

were dialing

you.

The only someone

I wanted

to see

last night.

I fell asleep

replaying our

last night.

I don't want

us to have

a

last night.

I want tons.

And I want you.

Every night.
