girl singing love songs on this old record player.
guitar strums echoing her beating and broken heart.
talkin’ about a boy who once knew their strength.
he stopped for a second and forgot where he came from.
afternoon sunshine spills onto my kitchen floor
and i’m making banana bread in the oven.
i can hear children laugh and yell random words,
as you laugh and smile along.
the wonder of the world boggles my mind.
plans change, time moves and love goes on.
as the girl exhales her last word, singing that song
it ends with her cherishing the boy who taught her love.
inspired to write this fictional piece after hearing a love song, wondered what her life would be like when she married and had kids
