The Day my Life Changed

1

It was twenty-five degrees hot

that summer July heat

sliding on your skin

with wanting.

It got so warm on the dance floor

as Get into the Groove

turned our dry clothes

wet with sweat and need.

Hours later

I still did not know your name.

Not sure if a lie

bleeds words.

 

2.

I said I need space

from someone

who gave me too much

of it.

 

3.

You broke my mirror

and called me a whore.

 

4.

You rubbed my back

held my hand so tight

never left my side

when I almost died.

 

5.

I flew half way around the world

so you could look at me

like a lover is supposed to.

 

6.

That day

you made me leave

work with one call

I need you.

 

7.

There was a hockey game on

I guessed some statistics

Canadians vs. Rangers

(it was a bang on guess though)

you turned to me

You are so fucking gorgeous. 

 

8.

Last night when I left the restaurant

and drove home alone

crying.
