Now & Then
Walker looks at me like I mean something to him.
Like he wants to devour my body and claim my heart.
But back then…
He treated me like a little sister, with just enough attention to make me think he loved me more than he should have.
Every time we drew closer, he would run away.
And my fourteen year old heart couldn’t take the rollercoaster of emotions.
Then, overnight, he disappeared completely.
Taking any dreams of our future with him.
It may have been nine years later.
And I may want him more than I ever have.
But I’m not sure I can risk my heart,
For what we could have now.
When I still haven’t recovered,
From what happened back then.
