River


You said you'd meet me
behind the stadium,
showing up
in your boyfriend's car,
unlocking the door
to let me in,
holding me closer
than before.
You drove in silence
across the river,
to a secluded place
I'd never been,
pulling me forever
into your dark current,
finally whispering,
you had to get back.
I barely managed
to stumble away
when you dropped me off,
no longer knowing
myself in the mirror.
