steal my heart

steal my heart, she said
  but he did not know how
  or where to start
sweep me off my feet
  is that a thing?
  i didn’t think so
i need you
to be assertive,
confident, to make the moves —
  i thought that was bad. i thought
  we were supposed to wait for you
just forget it. then she left
  the beach is beautiful this year…
