“I’m so sorry, ” he says again and again
The desperate crease across his eyebrows tells her he means it
She can tell he hasn’t eaten for a while
Seems all my days of late
Are spent in doubt
Regrettin’ what I done
Wonderin’ how to get out
I held her close to my side as we walked out of the restaurant.
The way she bounced when she stepped reminded me of a high-strung child
That I needed to keep a close watch on.
She hummed as she bounced.
I could never sleep at our house when it rained.
The bedroom I shared with my sister was near the front door where an undersized tin roof was all that offered cover from the rain.
I went to play mini golf with this guy I met.
I chose the Coral Sea course.
I thought the dark and the black lights might be romantic.
After a few holes, it seemed to be working.
