I remember

How’d we get here,
to this lonely place
where idle chit chat has become the norm
and empty jokes about each others lovers
are now common place conversations

How’d we get here?

Don’t you remember,
the times we spent over the summer
long, lustful conversations
taunting each other with promises for
tomorrow, all the things we never said
all the things we never did.

Do you remember?

I remember your charming ways,
the memories of you chivalrous traits
tempting me, so close to the edge
of letting go, jumping off the cliffs
hoping we’d soar, and climb higher
than the mountains we longed for and admired.

Will you remember?

As I remember.
