Love in a time of loneliness

I’ve stayed up too long in an unmade bed
thinking of how I encounter you subconciously
you don’t look the same, and my heart has slipped out
the back pocket of your Levi’s.
But the bed is no longer familiar
I can bridge it with my body
and be assured that you won’t
take up any space
with your stingy silhouette
and that hurts me
than the matching
coffee mugs
and how I am an extra set of keys richer.
I love you.
I love you as sure as loneliness is
and things of that nature
dogs of that breed
peas of that pod
trees of that bark.
I love you like you’re out at a game with the boys
or you’re walking the dog
like you’re losing track of time somewhere
I love you like you’re coming back
like you didn’t mean it

    I love how your thoughts come floating by. They’re alien to me before I read them. After I’ve read them I wonder, why didn’t I think of this? Beautiful! 🙂
