From What I Remember of You | A Poem by Tim S.

You were sweet once…
like a warm breeze
that brushed my cheek

under plum trees.
And had I the power
I’d have stood the world

on its head
to prolong your kisses–
those little miracles

ignorant of time
and vaporous years.
Oh, you were so sweet once

but like all mirages
you disappeared behind clouds
and faded. And I,

in the end,
was nothing more
than a quick shadow

that crossed your cheek
when your infatuation with me

And you discarded me
like the pit
of a devoured plum.
