Youth II

Dedication: To Kimberly, too young and too wild.

Youth II

I wanted you because you were so young.
And I got you.
You showed me that you had seen life,
But only once or twice.
But in my haste to conquer you
I forgot that young people fall in love.
I know that I hurt you that summer.
For that much at least I am sorry.
I never should have led you to believe
That there was a tomorrow.
Now there is only yesterday.
