“High School Sweetheart”

Late at night – alone,you come back to me.
Your presence pervades
my life like sound
upon silence.

Your softness
etched upon my touch;
the beigeness of your body
upon my soul.

Your brown moon haunting eyes
loving and longingly follow me
and I find no peace.

Were I to see you now
after these long years
would the image shatter;
the dream dissolve?

No doubt.

For the form I see
is yesterday’s girl,
and today is now.
