Title: Me, You , and Tiramisu
It was our first official date-
Though we’ve been together for years.
Somehow, things always got in the way-
“us” time became “we” time with friends
Or “crash” time at home
Or “vacation” time during visits.
Actual dates- planned-out, set-aside dates-
Those hadn’t happened yet.
I guess it doesn’t really matter.
I was happy-
You were happy-
We were happy with how things were.
Still, we were told that we needed to be “official”-
Maybe it was a friend, or an article, or some social rule-
And that we could only be “together” if we had a real date.
So, we dressed up.
You wore a silver button-up shirt.
I wore a blue dress-
And we went to a little café.
You ordered a chai
I ordered a mocha
And we shared the tiramisu
