Last year’s lover

Your kisses just don’t taste the same
it’s funny how time fell between
your eyes are still supernal green
your smile enough to make birds sing
but your kisses just don’t taste the same
there’s something missing in between,

You body’s just as hard and swift
demanding more than everything
but your soul has drifted out to sea
lost in the fog of who we’d been.

I love you now in different .ways
like errant child or precious ring
the night’s we shared will always be
a part of me, huge part of me.

Your kisses just don’t taste the same
there’s too much time and too much grief
there’s something fallen in between
my green eyed boy
my one sweet joy
my treasured last year’s lover.
