It's not about what's on the page. It's about what it really means.

June eleventh
First night of summer
All our classes done
And our finals over
We celebrate the year
In those woods
With that fire
All your crazy friends
And that bridged river

You wait with me
As I fight to keep up
And I fight through the twigs
The leaves and the branches
Then we reach the river
And I pick up my pace
Running towards the bridge
Leaving you behind
But I stop ?And I turn

I run back to you
Only inches apart
Only seconds spent staring
Into your sky blue eyes
Lean forward
Lips meet
For the first time but not the last
Running again
Towards the rest of the guys
Cheeks bright red
And tummy butterflies swirling
