i don’t mind


blue eyes

clear

the crust of life’s

inequities

not yet caught

in the corners

bright smile

real

not yet able

to fake fascination

in a woman’s ways

I loved you then

back when

my young heart

didn’t know

it could hold

more than you

old eyes

clouded

by the dust

of the young

running past me

I don’t mind

how could i?

you’re still here

in my heart

where you belong

time was the test

and the rest couldn’t

crowd you out
