Ruddy

I fired at him suggestions,
hinting, he won’t be able to do it.
He seemed poise and said,
I will do it.
My cheeks turned ruddy.
I felt his energy shoving against mine.
I felt so tenuous at that moment.
I wished to run and bury myself somewhere.
What was I thinking?
Did I just challenge his belief?
Now, I just wish to see his belief win.
Because if that intense energy can’t win,
I don’t know what will.
