My mind rolls back to that day.
Down in the south,
Where the air was warm
And when a breeze came,
It was like heaven on earth.
My thoughts echo words,
The words said on the last day down there.
I think about the moment,
Sitting on the steps of the big, white building,
I made sure not to sit right next to you.
No more accusations were needed.
We had grown closer,
Like really close friends.
I could talk to you about things
And you opened up to me.
People looked at us a different way,
We laughed at the thought.
I remember that morning,
A coolness slipped through the air.
She asked about you and I
I reassured that there was nothing
But she didn't believe me.
We couldn't talk to each other,
The awkward glances,
The overwhelmed sighs,
There was a tension between us
And a hurt in my eyes.
