Comedic / Open Gender / Mental Health
A man reflects on his first love, and the special time and place they went to down by the riverside.
Originally performed by a man, but this is open gender.
Our house was close to a river. It wasn't a big house but it was comfortable. Typical really. White fence, red door, green lawn cut short. Far enough away from the city to let just enough wilderness creep in around the edges. A safe space, but just wild enough for a child to tame.
Amy lived next door. She was kind and gentle. I was awkward and unsure. She knew everything, but then again she was six months older than me, so of course she did.
The river was wide and powerful. It cut through our entire county but it only was accessible from our houses. It was our space. The wild waves that belonged only to me and her.
