Forgivness is Lost

I know, I know.

[I kissed you
without any passion
I held you with grace
but left the conversation
weeping in the corner

I forgot you
in the words I spoke
I lost my future
somewhere in this doubt
(I just wanted you to know)

Let us forgive the wind
for stealing dandelions and understanding
from beneath our noses
we will see another summer,
the fireflies will dance again
(lighting up your eyes:
your shy smile
conveying that perfect desire)

When I was with you
I understood time
(every moment was like concrete;
you were the stars
and I, the bottom of the sea)
I just thought I'd let you know]
