Poem: I Remember.

I remember

That one time

You declared your love,

You said it like

You were offering me

The sun above.

_____________________

You nodded at me

Like you’d achieved

A great feat,

Like a lizard who

Dropped from the sky

And landed on its feet.

_____________________

I stared at you

With my heart

Bleeding in my hands,

Thinking that

Numbness and blood

Weren’t the kind

Of love for which

I had planned.
