they say you fall in love seven times in your lifetime,
so how come seven times were with you?
the first time was in the spring — a friendship blossomed like the daisies, growing fast.
a second time in the summer; that one a little deeper, penetrating the soul.
a third when the hot air began to cool down — unlike the sparks you ignited.
with the first winter snow fall came the fourth and fifth time, calm & chilling on the skin.
the sixth time moved in quickly & dissolved like salt poured into water — leaving a bad taste in my mouth.
and the seventh time was simply on a warm & late April evening, completely against my will.
