best friends

By amysz

in the summertime
when we used to lie
on the chaise lounges
by your grandmother’s pool

or sit on the edge
and tie our feet together
with hair ties
to be mermaids

you would tell me what
to pretend to be
and the world looked better
through your eyes

summers we would
spend weeks together
one night at my place
the next night at yours

when we silently slipped through
each other’s fingers
I was heartbroken
and didn’t quite understand


then, much later, the world
looked better through his eyes
he’d tell me the game
and I’d play along

we’d spend night
after night together
(one night at my place
the next night at his)

when he slipped through
my fingers
I was heartbroken
and this time I understood
