"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space "between the notes and curl my back to loneliness." ~Maya Angelou, Gather Together in My Name


The last time I saw you
Was the first time we touched.
So distant, yet-
So close.

Your eyes were green,
Instead of blue;
Making me wonder,
Were you being true?

But as I melted
Into your embrace
My suspicion was subdued.
And all I knew to be true (at the time)
Was that I was in love with you.

It didn't last that long,
But I didn't need much.
My heart began to slowly shed
Its thick layer of rust.

But as we parted
Your strange green eyes
Darted away from me.
And I could see
Once and for all
That you could
Never truly love me.

The last time I saw you
Was the first time we touched.
And now I'm gone
And that's the end
Of my first lover's first touch.
