we must learn to live
apart.

oh darling, i hope you know that your smile
is something i'll never forget. even when the
sky is the brightest purple & the sunlight is
streaming through the clouds and the day is
something extraordinary, i'll remember you.
and i never thought about anyone near as
much as you crossed my mind, invaded my
soul and marked my existance. & your hands
on me, they aroused the deepest beauty i've
ever felt. and the way you said forever made
me want to kiss you hard in the summer rain.

(but- i never understood why
you gave me your sweater in
the middle of august, anyway
.)
