Meet Cute

28 Jun
Our meet-cute was just poetry
you followed mine - and I, yours
we swapped numbers on MySpace
you texted me with an attachment,
a video of you in a black dress creating 
to Dido's "White Flag,"
your winsome playfulness
captivated mine.
Though you left this shuttle in 2016
but I am forever encountering you.

    So beautifully stirring, and that ending is so sad.

      Thank You, Lucy. Some wounds in this life can never quite heal – and that is a good thing.
