a Soul Project

archival : the end in sight :

Maybe it'll subside
sooner than I thought.
Andrew kissed me,
and I was his first.
First everything, so far.
I remember how that felt,
but it seems a lifetime ago.
I'm so damned afraid still,
even of this boy
who hadn't tasted life
outside his safe home
until today.
I just want out of here, this town.
And you know what I said
on accident, that took me
by complete and total surprise?
"I love you."
It just flew out. And I meant it.
I want this boy to be happy.
He has auburn hair and a freckled face,
and I'm attracted to his heart.
Kiss me again, Andrew.
