I remember rain
being seven years old
the green plastic of my rain coat
dancing to music that wasn't there
I remember being sick
from dancing too long
I caught a cold
I remember sunshine
the sun beating down
twelve years old
the sand beneath my feet
I remember the sun burns
how red my skin was
the smell of the aloe
as my mom rubbed it on my back and shoulders
I remember you
asking me out
going to the football games
I remember kissing you
kissing you first
you were to afraid
it was your first kiss too
I remember her
the girl you cheated with
a cheerleader
a blonde, of course,
figures, you always did like blondes
I remember thanking god
It was pouring rain
That way you couldn’t see the tears
As they ran down my cheeks
You walked away with a slap across the face,
I walked away with a broken heart
I remember Ben & Jerry’s
Drowning tears in Phish Food
I remember the hate
Watching your friends point and laugh
You told them you broke up with me
She’s toxic, not worth the suffering
I laughed to myself
I remember lots of things
Happiness followed by sadness,
I could count off hundreds
You are the only one I regret

This about my first boyfriend, who cheated on me with my blonde cheerleader best friend who always wanted what she couldn't have, including her best friend's boyfriend, the next day I confronted her, she said it's not her fault I can't satisfy my boyfriend, I decked her hard across the mouth, we never spoke again.
