Anniversary Poem Drafts 1 and 2

A year ago I was in love?

Or what someone may call love I suppose. Its hard to believe now

how i felt with him then.

Ryan was his name, clingy and overly dependent are the words that describe him now.

We were in summer love, wearing the masks of who we wanted each other to see.

Together all the time.

I was blind to my feelings as he was all I had.

Until I uprooted my life to go to France.

I planted roots there and grew apart from him.

Now when I think of him its just overly dependent and needy.

 

Draft 2

A year ago I was in love?
Or what someone may call love. Its hard to believe now
how I felt with him then.
Ryan was his name, clingy and overly dependent are the words in my mind now.
We were in summer love, wearing the masks of who we wanted each other to see.
Together all the time.
I was blind to my true feelings.
Until I left my life to go to France.
I planted roots there and grew apart from him.
Now when I think of him it’s a blur in my head.
