I was the Fish – Kadeem Beresford-James
A girl broke my heart, once.
Through rising bubbles
I think on it now
What was she to me?
A dark skinned rocker to show me more than rap.
A leader whose authority I didn’t hate.
An apparent outcast who didn’t hide.
A beacon of beauty in a world full of ugly.
A new friend in a new place who brought new things and made a new me
A friend broke my heart, once.
And, despite all she was to me,
she was also
just another girl.
