Do you remember today? Today, 11 years ago?
I remember giving into all of my fears,
With the immensity of hope.
I remember my heart not waiting for my permission,
To erupt from my body.
I remember how perfectly moist the air smelled,
Though that was sweat, not air on me.
I remember the pulled-up sleeves on your borrowed jacket,
You holding me back as I naively jumped out of the car.
I remember that room number,
I know you do too.
Eleven years have passed,
Since I first met you.
