When you came in close
You would fit perfectly under my chin
Your scent filled my nostrils
My olfactory bulb lit up brighter than the sun
I knew this was a moment I would remember forever.
When our hands interlocked - They didn’t fit just right.
I should have ignored this but I loosened my grip
I wanted things to be perfect - I was chasing a fantasy.
With your strength and courage
You called me out
I was speechless but impressed
Scared and confused.
At that moment, I knew I loved you
But you knew that, this was the end
A red flag flown
Leaving me with a memory
Forever carved in stone
