I fell for you years ago.
before I could pronounce it I was calling your name.
I read stories about us.
Watched movies with you and I in the leading roles.
I’ve tasted the temperature of milk for your son and
choked on tears at your wake.
You fell for me back then.
Saw the future in my eyes and felt at home in my skin.
You left something with me that you can’t find again.
I stole something from you without ever knowing.
We danced back then.
Kissed on long walks back then.
Now I watch us played out on stages all around me
wondering will I ever play the original again.
