remember that day in the park

when I met you
sitting ackwardly
on the grass
chasing the sunshine

remember that day in the park
where we first kissed
warm
under the blanket
and we both went home alone

remember that day in the park
hobbling with cane
black eye
street meat and kisses for dinner

remember that day in the park
where you left me
us both yelling and crying
peeling apart our tangled lives

being a creature of this earth

hidden
in a cave.

I climb
ascending to new heights
I climb
finding freedom
I climb
and there is love
on the real mountain.
