I remember you as if it were yesterday
The boy with the dimples
A recent aquisition of the school's
How you made my seven year old heart beat faster
I smiled wider to show how happy you could be if we held hands
And now, so many years later
it comes to me like a dream
and I smile, watching you across a room
recite poetry with a dry mouth.
Oh Lord, doesn't time fly?
Only months ago I could've strangled you
Now I love
Oh heart, cease your beating.
