I remember how you used
to scribble on the blackboard during
You used every color of chalk in the box
and your eyes danced
as you flourished the eraser.
You didn't see me
What's the use of lipgloss and perfume?
I just can't bring myself to care.
I missed my chance to learn
the soft contours of a lover's embrace
or the rhythm of a kiss.
I write your initials on the blackboard
and erase them right away.
I should have said something.
It's too late.
