Not The Time

his manicured hands
lightly brush against mine
only for a second
but I feel the electricity
he talks and I can’t help
but be drawn to his lips
how soft and warm
they appear to be
his eyes dance
when he starts to laugh
then suddenly turn gentle
with a softened look
I know he would hold me
if only I would ask
the temptation is so strong
for I feel so all alone
but this is not the time for passion
he’s only just a friend
who’s more than I could handle
and all that I’ll ever want
