Dancing With Your Shoes Off - Poem by Diego Adrian Manriquez

I remember when you leaned in to kiss me on the school yard back in the fourth grade,
I remember those long walks around the park and watching the town parade,
I remember holding your hand for the first time and asking you to dance,
I remember when we broke out into silence and when your tears soaked my shirt,
I remember saying sorry a thousand times and promising it'll never happy again and each promise sealed with a kiss,
I remember watching the sunrise and the sunset with you,
I remember sneaking into your room on late school nights,
I remember driving around this small town with your hand tightly in mine,
And if there was a sign that this would last forever,
It would have been shown,
Like all great things this one ended with a sting form the rose I pulled for you,
The madness you had driven me to,
Crying myself to sleep every night,
And the saddest thing is I don't regret a single fight.
