That September Night

That September


I didn't know my life would change.
I went out to have fun. I didn't think I'd meet someone who'd define my year.


That October


Your other world came crashing down.
From two houses to one, I was the place you now had to seek refuge.


That November 


We sit together at the party.
Wrapped in each other's arms, I see no one else but you.


That December


I didn't realize how hard it would be.
Apart for the first time, my heart aches in a way unfamiliar. 


That March


It is my birthday.
You tell me how much you love me. I tell you right back.

That May


I meet your family for the first time.
With each warm hug, I wonder why your embraces don't feel the same.


That July


I lie in my bed next to you.
I don't know if this is love. I don't know if we're supposed to be like this.


This August


Almost a year later,
I don't know if my life had changed.
