Growing Up - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

The laughter we shared
The times we tickled each other nonsensically
Or made funny faces
And cracked naïve jokes
The times that slipped from us
As we shot up and found a place
Where slimy french kisses took over
And we were fools in heart
Where in the anarchy of hormones
Was a delusion of love

    I love the last two lines of this poem.... So wise and nostalgic... I've only read two of your poems, but it seems as if you are telling a story with your collective work? (Report) Reply
