For My October and Forever

This morning of September
When I woke up
I felt the crisp of the wind
Touching my toes and my face
For they are naked
And they longed to be touched
I don’t know where you’ve been
Last night
Or how many necks you’d tickled
With your rough-hewn stubble
With your soft lies
I had let you entered the walls
Of my room
Just because you always knew
You’re invited
To disrobe my innocence
To let me feel the world
In your selfish point of view
And when I threw my blanket
On the floor
Which of course
You would never notice
I was ready to see the world
I was ready to fly with you
Then suddenly you fumbled
toward the window
Without me
It felt colder
As rapid as the breeze
In a stormy morn
I fell in love
And you fell out of love
That easy
I gave my everything to you
That easy
And it felt like some parts of me
Are missing
As if you would carry them with you
But I couldn’t follow you
Because you left me with nothing on
You left me waiting
And waiting
and waiting
It felt like forever
For that someone
Who’ll dress me up
Before showing me the world
But I’ll still be waiting.

The First Fall

The winter nights
were colder
without him—
his breath thawing
my frozen heart.
I always knew,
that feeling wasn’t
as fleeting
as a summer love—
the shores remembered.
Or as momentary
as the spring break—
when I never
knew of heartbreaks.
Because when
I first fell in love,
I knew he is
my last.
