Cross *him* off the list!

To the African who loved me– at least temporarily

 

To the African who loved me– at least temporarily

 

I think I loved you too, in that moment.

Or, at least, I loved your words.

For–in the way of wooing man– you

said all the right things.

Did I want babies?  And a faithful

man? And real love? And a soul connection?

 

And in that moment, our souls did connect,

I believe.

Though you probably didn’t know it

because I am too jaded

to let anything show.

I’ve heard all those pretty words before.

But, maybe you were sincere.

 

And because you will only ever live

as a treasure in my imagination,

I choose to believe you were.
