14

Alone
with you,
I am
14 again.

No,
I never was
that young.
Demure perhaps,
but never
child.

I grew
old over
night.
Skipped
childish
lessons
I learned
young.

But you…

You made me
all eye
lashes
and growling
stomach.

You made me
quick to
tease and
easy to
catch

and completely
in love with you.

In 14 year
old love,

wrapped in
idolatry and
gratitude.

It wasn’t
meant to
last.
