lies

the day – i still remember –
cast fairy dreams and golden light
on my small hands
reaching reaching reaching
for something.

i’ll be back –
i was too young to understand
but i remember your words as if yesterday,
your car revving up dust and dirt –
i’ll be back.

my stomach hurt –
i think i already knew –
but the sun sang to me from the sky
and i crouched in the trees
as the moon fought the night.

the cold froze me, as i waited,
your words of how much you cared warmed me within
but even that fire died out
as i was led into a strange building with kids my age
who told me that your words were all lies.
