SHIVER

I was fifteen
When I first saw you
In seventy-eight.

Back when
Our hair was brown
Eyes, different shades of blue.

Yours
Shivering me
To my core.

Drawing me
Into
Another world.

From
Which, I wish
Never to escape.

With each character
Played
Bringing part of the real you.

From that day forward
My heart
Has carried you through.

And
Love
Remains.
