MIND: Adolescence

In those days, I didn’t understand anything.
I should have judged her according to her actions, not her words.
She perfumed my planet and lit up my life.
I should never have run away!
I ought to have realized the tenderness underlying her silly pretensions.
Flowers are so contradictory!
But I was too young to know how to love her.
