I stared at all the baggage
Laid out in front of me
Stopped and took a deep breath
As I began to unpack the memories
The dress I wore in the crowded room
When your gazed was glued to me
The shoes that brought my feet to life
And made the dance floor home
The lipstick I wore just to see you
But you missed it all together
The smell of sunshine on my skin
The sand that followed me home
The sun that darkened my complexion
Whilst leaving permanent marks
On my young and cautious heart.
Thank you for reading.
