I painted this ceramic piece for him a couple years ago.
It was serendipity that we met
Summer had not started yet, but
It was the final week of school
Decided to go to
a group that met at a home
We chatted, we snacked
You asked what I did for fun
I smiled, didn’t answer the question
Then flexed the arm to show my muscles
Under your shirt were bigger muscles
You looked at me with a smile
You worked out also, for quite a while
The whole night, I didn’t see other guys’ faces
You occupied my entire mind’s spaces
Time was flying by and we said “Good night”
I knew I was in love with you at first sight
No more home meetings in summer, but
You had my phone number
Remember our first date?
We went to the gym on a late Sunday.
