You see these movies
And read the books
About 'friends with benefits'
That end up falling in love
This totally romantic notion
And it holds no logic
Sure, a woman could fall in love
With the man that ******** her all the time
But men don't see sex the way we do
Which is why I felt so safe in this contract
I had taken a lover
Fully ready to detach myself emotionally
He had been a close friend
But I couldn't deny my attraction
And neither could he
I thought he understood
I thought he didn't care that much
At least he didn't seem to mind
When I couldn't even look him in the eye
So what the ********?
Did my lover lose his mind?
Why is he asking how I'm feeling
When my clothes are still on?
He's acting like a jealous mate
Whenever he sees other men hug me
He jumps up and walks away
Like it tears his heart out
I had no problem with this arrangement
It was fun
I felt powerful and desired
And my lover half-confesses his feelings
That he has more feelings than just lust for me
Why does that make my heart flutter?
I shrug it off
He can't mean it
Oh but those pretty compliments fall from his lips
And I feel like I can trust him
I hooked him?
I captured his heart?
Maybe my lover is high
But he keeps saying these things
Acting like my mate
And that's when I realize
Oh, my lover has lost it
He's fallen in love
We became the cliche
The lovers that fell in love
I'm such a cynical b***h
Most women could find this romantic
I find it ironic
I can only laugh at this joke
Perhaps it's only fair
That my love life be made into this
I shoulda been a lot smarter
