Let’s go back …
XO – Beyonce
To that birthday; when we had dinner in the city,
Taking pictures to capture the moment.
I still have those, y’know?
We rode back to your place with the top down.
“Which way do you want to go?”
You knew the answer.
We should have taken the streets.
Do you remember playing that song,
As we headed down the Belt?
From the speakers, B crooned
The lights from Coney Island illuminating the sky.
What were you trying to tell me?
Whatever it was, I couldn’t see it.
Couldn’t believe it.
