We chased each other


We chased each other
Not looking
We chased each other
While talking
We pushed the sky up
Peeled the water aside
And sat like we had never sat before
That assurance. That flamboyance. That dance of your eyes.
And suddenly, I ask, why beauty mattered to you
That is how we grew. That is what we drew
In the mind
A picture of the perfect you
And the silly of me asked, why beauty mattered to you
Seen, not seen. Spoke, won’t speak.
All of it accepted
Hear, you must. And tell, you must.
For I might otherwise ask, why beauty mattered to you
And you say, it didn’t
With perfection, you trained so well
