Building blocks that became mazes in the dark
Spiderman parachuting off the roof of our building
Ice cream money raining from the window
Stealing bases and grass stained pants
Uno, Clue, Monopoly
Desperately defending the jail

Becoming aware of my image
Pleated skirts and knee highs that slouched
Slicing into dead pigs, and myself
Someone more of a father to me than my own
Four years of butterflies
Two months of bliss
One day of tears and anger

Taking back my choices
Pursuing a career on my own terms
45 minutes of bodies and graffiti
Loving but not falling in love
Open seas and bad choices
An angel on earth becoming one in heaven

Falling apart
Being pieced back together again
Truly falling in love and being fallen in love with
Making a promise
Living my life
