I keep praying you will leave me alone,
It started as an innocent conversation,
A coffee date
Dinner in a fancy restaurant
Later in the week
A drink at the bar
And later coffee in the apartment
I didn’t want the kiss
The caress on the thigh
I always said I had a boyfriend
You didn’t listen
You kept pushing the boundaries
I wasn’t strong enough to keep you away
You thought my no was a yes
I must confess
In the beginning I loved the attention
I had a daily battle with the angels and demons
I knew better
Now I freeze when you call
I am scared to open my e-mail account
Least I find your hate mail
I want out
I am walking out
Just like I got knocked in
