Boy, but didn’t we laugh, though?
Sneaking in , right under their noses, no less
to explore each other,
Smiling through our kisses
While our hearts ached at the impossibility of it all,
Pretending we didn’t know better,
We lied to make it better;
Making promises that would evaporate
With the dew on the grass in the morning sunshine.
Suffocating each other with kisses
And hardly able to keep up the frenzied rhythm
We set up with our bodies,
We crashed…only to begin again.
Oh! The sweet emergency of it all!
Dying to be together, we acted as though we could,
And snickered at everything,
Joked about everything, so lighthearted.
And held onto each other for life, wide-eyed in the silence.
In the dark.
Promising even that last day
That last time
That last kiss
That last smile…
Promising we would see each other again;
That we would belong to each other for the rest of our lives.
Sitting here now
Wondering where you are,
Wiping away the tears you would not allow me
To cry back then, I think, “What the hell was so funny…?”
Man, but didn’t we laugh, though?
