My Body Betrays Me

my body betrays me
with you,
i can’t pretend
although i try.

a sidelong glance
a finger brush
and i am lost
for you
only you.

how do you
work that magic
without even trying,
without even knowing?
you undo me
leaving me
senseless, wanting,

although i try
i can’t pretend
with you,
my body betrays me.

every time.
