Poem: You


Remember me? I haven’t gone much of anywhere.

I told you I was in my own world, I didn’t mean it.

The things we say that have no meaning, that are taken literally, too literally.

Remember me? You use to stare and we’d wave at each other.

I remember only liking you, no one else would ever do.

It took too long to get over you, and now you’re just a fragment;

Of those crazy years past by long ago, when we were young and barely adult.

When passing tests and writing papers were big deal breakers; 

And some student’s cried when they realized they couldn’t make the mark,

But that was not me or you, and I’m not writing this to moan about what could have been.

I knew you’d be great, find your niche, you are a charmer, that personality spreads like butter. 

Now, I am here and you would never recognize me, at least I hope you wouldn’t 

But I am me, no matter my size, and I live such a different life.

I don’t think we’ve ever connected, I was just a stopping place on your road of life.

Remember me? Never do. I am looking ahead; and I’ve brought with me all the past I need. 

They are here; not you.
