once upon

and i saw you:

fingers twisting your t-shirt,
longboard by the door,
with one foot in.
always one foot in.

you could’ve asked for the world
i would’ve given you
anything. everything.

instead, you chose my smile,
with a sad goodbye
and too sweet kiss,
you gave me life.

it took me years to understand
that pain could be treasure
unburied and given away.

finally, i saw you
