No not there
In between this and that
The place you and I went
Remember back then
When we were one
Or rather we were one inside
Those days those were the days
But I think we both agree it’s better this way
Two ways now back and forward
Recalling and calling are no longer optional they are basic
They come with the spare tire in the trunk
The trunk you kept forgetting the blankets or towels in
It’s been too long now I can’t remember
Two times, the last was a dream I had one night where you stabbed me in the chest
I woke up afraid actually afraid
My chest hurt
I pass that room now
Those expected places
Those places we filled with our flesh, our minds
Our reckless hearts filled with fledgling hopes
Our eyes blind to the future and the past
I should have bought a flashlight
Just you and me.
It was a note for your parents
And it wasn’t in the trunk.
Flowers forgiveness forgetting foam on the beach that one time
The sky was amazing! It was so cold! But you did it anyway
Like the sun
New now day room bed carpet, I had a cat for awhile
It pooped everywhere I let it go out the door one day
It never came back. I thought I saw her once but it wasn’t her.
I keep expecting to hear her some night at the door
But I can’t remember her eyes now
What color were they? Why did she leave why did I want her to go?
Is it wrong to feel better about things?
Is it wrong to wish she would return with her shit
She needed more then I could give
On the back I give myself a pat
What else is there I have done everything else, its just a little pat
