I Didn’t Know.Posted: March 15, 2012
I didn’t know any better, I was so young
When you in middle school, lanky with blue so blue eyes,
Shook your head yes, yes you liked me, you bravely told my friends
While I, I ran away, I am ashamed to say.
I didn’t know better, I was so naive,
When you, in college, shot me in the street shiny with rain
With your camera, and I should have said, I am sure I meant to say,
I loved you with all of my heart, I wanted you to stay.
I didn’t know better, I was so wounded, at the time,
I should have appreciated your kindness, your
Attention and your love, all enveloping of my fragile self,
Me who had been kept on a shelf
for so many years,
Waiting for someone like you and longing for you, too.
I didn’t know better.
I know better, now.
