Near to you,
I lost something,
Your eyes reflect differently,
And you, nothing familiar,
Not the same as a days ago,

Near to you,
I realized something,
No scent to spark memories,
No goals, to share and move on,
Just the same as days ago,

I just missed it,

Near to you,
I knew something,
These Blue Lines, reflect dimly now,
You’re less jealous now,
Never mentioned days ago,

Near to you,
I heard something,
Your love fading,
Your heart breaking,
Did you, days ago?

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
