The Switch
ziggy11

Isn’t it funny how things change?
 1
Once, as kids
 2
We closed our eyes at affection
 3
As if watching it was wrong, repulsive, inappropriate.
 4
Then we went to the movies as teenagers
 5
Watched romantic comedies
 6
Heard the three words
 7
And wished that it was us.
 8
We longed for affection
 9
Daydreaming kept us out of the classroom
 10
And up at night.
 11
Somewhere along the way
 12
Things changed
 13
A switch was flicked.
 14
Or maybe someone told us
 15
That living is better in pairs
