What I didn't know then

  Persimmon sunshine
 in my mind
I think about you all the time
I drink the crimson silver spill
the overfloe from every thrill
The mercury from off the lid
of every shocking thing you did
and how I held on to the door
around the curves
to Nevermoor.
the raging wind the windy waves
the way you said the word that saves
the savage 
from the civilized,
I never even realized,
I was the one you carried high
like a banner in your sky
I wish that I had known back then
how much you loved me 
as a friend.
I 
would have rocked the world
around
I would have searched
until I found
the place for us 
beneath the sky
how dare you have 
the gall to die
and leave me just when I
discerned
the truth about 
the 
love that burned,
a hole in yesterday's 
regrets,
I know it now............
I won't 
forget
