I loved you because

i tended to get lost in your eyes
they were like a galaxy
i pretended to count the stars

you ran away from your exam
because you heard the ice cream truck
outside your classroom window
you knew they were selling my favourite ice cream

you sent me roses
red
every tuesday
and denied, denied, denied
that it was you who sent them

when you said you were dying
you decided you were going to boycott
cancer

after you died
a boy tried to kiss me
and all i could think about were your lips on mine

i can’t use the present tense, you’re gone
