My One True Crush

My one true crush is back in town

My hair is not done, my roots on display

My weight has increased, my wrinkles have grown

I think of his eyes, the depth of his blue

And see the echo in his child who is new

I cross the street, I’d rather be swayed

To not say hello, to not stop and greet

I cannot be trusted, my arms won’t behave

To not wrap around him, to hug and embrace

I’ll leave the past, dead as it is

And ignore the sound roaring –

Those pounding heart beats
