The first time I met your new boyfriend
You told him you know me from school.
I didn’t agree because I was only fourteen.
I couldn’t have known you at fourteen.
You argued, convinced I was fifteen.
I was fourteen when we met at school,
And I was fifteen when we first kissed.
I was sixteen that night on the beach,
And I was seventeen when I kept coming back
Even though I swore we were broken up.
I was eighteen when I discovered those long hours in your bed.
I was eighteen when they became my favourite.
I was eighteen when you said you loved me
And I was nineteen when I wrote it back.
But you never lied.
You do know me from school.
