You left your shirt on my floor today,

The one that makes your eyes look more green than hazel.

It reminded me of the time when

She said something about how beautiful they were

And it took everything in me not to look and

Everything not to jump in knowing I would fall and

Everything; my world would become a warm sea of green and

I didn’t; how could I know what that would mean or

Who you would become to me and that

My world wouldn’t be a sea of green but an open sky

Because with you I finally understand what it means to be free.
