When you started using we instead of I
The whole world took notice
But that wasn’t the only secret
There were others that summer too.
Dotted like stars
In the dry sunshine scented evenings,
Charmed by the river
As it glided lazily under our feet
Longing to be swept in its current
Just so we could save each other from eminent death,
But our eye never met.
In every word exchanged in lust and love
We gazed past each other
We gazed through each other,
It was easier,
If our souls didn’t meet through our irises
It would be easier to say goodbye,
But we got lost in the curves of one another’s bodies
Not needing our eyes to meet
When our hearts had made prior arrangements
Arrangements to love one another
To sit for long afternoons discussing us
Instead of me and you.
