Poetic Diversions 5: Saying Goodbye to my Teenage Dream Guy


Saying Goodbye to my Teenage Dream Guy


Out of school, out of work

I went back to a particular place in my hometown,

The site of pleasant memories of carefree growing-up years

The time I met the perfect guy

That time, the only one who could make me smile.

He has left the place

And all I have are memories

Of a time when the only thing that could make me smile

Is the presence of this perfect guy.
