BOY MEETS BOY

BOY MEETS BOY

When you

warmed up to the

spotlighted attention, I paid your way

welcomed in my gestures for friendship.

To my chagrin

You stayed longer than expected

For many took a walk of no return.

Slowly you became my foundation

I saw no me without you.

 

When you

became an artist

drawing my broken dreams to life

repainting that destructive self-image

I had of myself

Offered your shoulder

for my unburdening

listened to my unending talks,

complaints,

rants and dry jokes,

you drew me out of that shadowed hole of depression

Made me aware of my wings

And taught me to fly.

 

When you

made my house your home

spent your every free time with me

Letting me in to know you can be broken too,

I became a fixer

desperately wanting to mend you

as you did me.

 

When you

said “I care”

The words spilled out of your mouth

long pauses in between.

I knew you struggled to say it

but what mattered was that you said it

I understood every word

For I was already drowning in your ocean’s love.

 

What I didn’t know

was that

Cupid was yet to strike you,

I was the only one listening

to love’s orchestra

I danced to it

expecting you to join me.

You never did

You only cared.
