I was inspired to write this after listening to a friend express his love for his wife. Then I wondered how it would have been remembering the first time one fell in love at 16...

You remind me of a sunrise," I said on the day my eyes fell on your face.

And your name becomes my mouth,

Feeling like chilled honeydew melon on parched lips

While Santa Ana winds carried on all around me.

That I be in the right place, you to me & I to you & you to thee…

I am as here as I could be gift wrapped by your words,

And a dressing gown of your voice and draped in your smile.

If you were to go away right now it would be like the air stopped at half past not anything

If you were to leave me now I would be like Shakespeare’s

To be or not to be that is the question whirling on the Ferris wheel

If your were to leave me now all I would have is

A melody of silenced stringed notes…,

A cosmic symphony of no mores

That would have an audience of one

Though you may never know of how I deeply I loved you…

 I vowed I would never forget you

Though your name had been quieted by time


This is what I remembered of love to be like at 16.
