The last time I saw you
my knees shook.
They actually did.
They went weak,
I was afraid
I might fall,
Fall even deeper.
That hadn’t happened since a summer of 16
when my first great love
looked at me with
his amazing blue eyes
on a morning as we
waited for breakfast.
I never forgot the feeling
or the moment.
That had already ended by then too,
By the time he looked at me.
And yet I pined for him for years.
Just as I pine for you now.
I wonder what that says about me?
I hope it’s that I love well
(And not that I am stupid.)
He and I spent one night
bundled under illicit furs
on a bare floor
doing nothing but holding each other
and talking in front of the fire.
You and I had so much more.
Now, he is thousands of mile away,
Well, you might as well be.
But me –
I still feel like 16.
