15 years… 

We met under the most unusual of circumstances 
You 21, me 16, the ages of my birth parents 

We became inseparable almost instantaneously 
But life has a funny way of fucking things up 

I was young and you were so in love 

I was dumb and you were awkward 

I moved on 

You finally found someone 
7 years later 

We found each other again 

This time I saw you, really saw you 

You were beautiful 

I fell but you, you had demons 

And now we are here 
Broken promises 

Shattered words 

Both alone again 

15 years thrown away 

But I’ll remember what you said 

“Always” 

    

-B. 7-15-17
