For you Becca - POEM #11

I thought I knew what I wanted
To escape the chokehold of commitment
To ride the belief that I could do better than you
All the time ignoring your undying adoration

A rash decision made
On a love so young and pure

We were separated by distance
I would grow bored and lonely
But it did not compare to what I feel now
My itchiness took over my memory
Forgotten were all the good days
Lying there unaware of time or pressures
The angelic glow of your skin
A face inherited from a nymph
The blue eyes that pierced through my prison walls
And flooded me with silk

I broke your heart once before
People would guess after the first time
There would be no resurrection
After the second they’d be sure

My respect for you is at its strongest
Brave enough to deny me a third chance
And leave desperate messages at the door of your brain
But I know that twice
I have destroyed the innocent shy girl
That once loved me to protect herself

Deep down I know I have killed it
A teenager in a mid life crisis
If we met 10 years later
Maybe we’d be married
And doubt would be gone
But if I could yank the clock handles back around
I would have stayed one moment more
And be reminded of what I had
