Day 241 – The Professor

They called him The Professor
I don’t remember his real name
but it was enough that they always
threw us two together

He was a gentleman of poetry,
sent me quotes from C.S. Lewis
I tried hard to keep my spine straight
and use the proper words

They said that he adored me
but I could never tempt him
in my wildling days, I guess
he knew to give a decent space

And now I smile on those nights
my head resting on his shoulder
kinda wishing he would try it
always knowing that he wouldn’t

I never took it hard, I knew
his gentle spirit needed more
but it was enough that they always
threw us two together
