Childhood Dreams

She came to me in a dream and left in the arms of nightmare.
 I was a mess of paper boats and blushing cheeks. 
 wet tar and twigs to poke.
tousled hair and baseball hats
She wore the sun like a halo.

I said girls don't skateboard, she proved me wrong. 
the ice cream man and  pinky promises
adolescence and bravado 
high school and empty promises 
I held my diploma in my hand and her in my heart. 
an indian summer. one stupid party
application letters and broken promises.
the rain poured down the day she left.

i said we were forever, she proved me wrong. 

childhood dreams shattered on the pavement.
