Fragment

You wrapped me in your wings
As together we lay
Seven days in heaven
Before you flew away

I regret that moment
When first I saw your smile
I longed for forever
You only stayed a while

I'm left with no answers
You left me before dawn
Me the ugly duckling
Dreaming you were my swan

Yet some dreams are fleeting
No answers will be found
A heart can be broken
Without making a sound

    I had a friend tell me once after many years that my looks have improved a lot since High School. I was a scrawny little guy, 125 lbs my senior year.
