Biting honeysuckles from the bush after school
Or the baseball diamond, when you lost your cool
Laying in the field, high, lit only by moonlight

Screaming in drunken stupor in alleys, on streets
Giving you eyes at a house party discreetly
Wishing I could just say what I mean

Who was I to you?
In these sweet thoughts
What have I forgot?
Things left unsaid
That need to be wrought

Your horrified look every time I got a new hair cut
When you’d help me out of yet another rut
Hearing all of my stories and egging me on

Getting locked out of the car in that mall in LA
Kissing in the stairwell for what felt like a day
Your tears dropping right into your soup

I plead not to lose
This pang of loss
What have I forgot?
Things left unsaid
That need to be wrought

Blood spilling from your head, upturning garbage cans
Poking endless fun at me, telling me to be a man
Scrubbing my name off of the sidewalk

Going for a hug you weirdly bowed at ninety degrees
Huddling on the beach at night so we wouldn’t freeze
The slow walk out of Penn Station

Who was I to you?
A forget-me-not?
What have I forgot?
What things are left unsaid?
What needs to be wrought?
