"He Remembers" A Poem - The Misadventures of Little Rudger

He remembers the look in her eyes.

As he lay on the futon in the other room.

As she woke him up on her way to work.

And kissed him on the lips.


...

...

...

He remembers feeling that he would never see her again.

As she left his parent's house and left the garage door clicker on the counter.

Something told him this was it.

Some unknown force compelled him to leap up from his bed and chase after her.

Something compelled him to confess.

He didn't.

....

Something else told him to stay put.

He did.

...

But still...

...

Still he remembers.

...

Still, he remembers the look in her eyes.

...

The look in her eyes...

...

...

...

...
 
As she kissed him on the lips...

and said "goodbye."
