Do you remember when we use to hang

We met in the 5th grade

You were singing this ominous song

Drawn to you , I felt your presence 

You're very powerful

The fluidity of your words

The movement of your body

Beautiful in your stance

My fellow classmates made fun of you

Your gaze never left mine

You opened me

Why didn’t we meet sooner?

I needed you

You could’ve helped me 

Why aren’t you around anymore

I forgot about you

I can’t speak to you, I haven’t spoken since 

I’ve given up on you

I was left open 

I miss you
