of course i remember you and your gold splashed skin
the freckles i yearned to trace on your arm
& the strawberry sweetness of the way you said my name

can we buy slushies at the gas station again some day?
the raspberry on your face--remember how it looked like
lipstick? remember how hard we laughed?

i was in love with you then. perhaps i still am;
especially (if only) you’d come back
and put sunflowers in my cold hand.
& yet you won't say anything

    I tried to review the link you gave me but it wasn't there. So I submitted reviews for both this piece and the other one. Write the World may not have looked at it yet, though...

    The questions in the second stanza really help to convey the conflict of the love I really like it!

    This is so beautiful- "the strawberry sweetness of the way you said my name" and "(if only) you’d come back/ and put sunflowers in my cold hand" had me swooning. I am so in love!!
