If You Loved Me


Julianna Patterson '23


the skies would be blue for eternity.


your arms would encompass me,

holding me while we are covered in tie dye

in hopes neither of us would ever let go


your chestnut brown eyes,

staring into them endlessly

while the world falls apart around us


I would vow to never leave you,

the childish nervousness would vacate

till death do us part


If you loved me.
