Hometown hero,
Sweep me off my feet.

I hung your dog-tags up as a reminder of the promise you made to your country, and the promise I made to you.

Every
     conversation
   leaves
Me
     feeling as
Co
  nf
    us
      ed
As the 
     last

Fourteen letters, six syllables, two words all committed to paper with pen. Enlisting help from a greater cause, you became better at running and left for a marathon with no end.

The girl with big city dreams fell in love with the hometown hero. And everyone thought they were going to get married.
