love letter II

to dance with you
to sing to you
to hold you in my heart
i have to let you go
& hope you find
your way
to me.

once upon a time a boy who was a friend of mine had a dream and traveled from montana to illinois to fall in love with me. we said we were soul mates. we said we were a split-apart. we said we would be bigger than the beatles….
but we were so young & stupid & i started thinking maybe we had “split-apart” for a reason, and i was too young to realize how lucky i was to have him.
now with worlds explored & years lived, i know how lucky i was…and how stupid…
and keep hoping i could get lucky again.

i don’t have any good photos of him because i stupidly burned all photos of my many exes on full moon in athens, georgia. i got these copies from one of my sisters.
