Your face was electrified by the twitches
Working out the uncertain wrinkles.
Captivated by your wavering voice
The rise and fall in confidence.
And I sat
Uncomfortably in my seat.
Awkwardly melted into your words
Exhausting confusion of circling thoughts.
In that instance you held the power
My concentration wiped blank, breathe.
And I dug my fingers deep in resistance.
Puncturing the seat beneath me.
