We walked
palms in palms,
each feet following the step
of the other’s feet.

Slow and steady
in the middle of
the young night,
taking our time with each step we took

We laughed
at nothing in particular.
Maybe in the sillyness
of our sillyness.

We were young again
sharing a puppy love,
hiding from the eyes of
passersby.

You kissed me
behind the white truck.

Everything changed
for good and for worse.
There was no feeling in particular
just a rush of emotions.

You walked me home.
Hand in hand we walked.
We stopped
and looked at each other.

I saw it.
I saw nothing.

Rush of emotions.

This is for me.
This is not for you.
My heart has betrayed me
Tonight, she begins to beat again.
