Past Beginnings

every time you talk to me i feel instantly younger
and stupider
and happier in a way i cant explain because you shouldnt mean anything
and yet you mean so much
you were the starting line
of first heartfelt compliments and first kisses
the beginning and endings so quickly wrapped up into one another like they
never really mattered
as if they were the same
so when you ask me how ive been
after all this time
after your life and mine took separate paths
after there were other compliments
and other kisses
and after you matter so much differently now
it makes my heart
skip small beats
it makes me think that beginnings can change but they do not have to be erased
that we were never
and we will never again be
but here we are
and im well
how are you
