her

there you were
spaghetti strapped linen
radiating a healthy mask
so dissimilar to my daydreams

strength and resilience
shine through your forest ringed eyes
as we discuss our mundane problems
with mirrored minds

all of a sudden
another crack in my golden heart
when you left I was awoken
to our deep connection

I’m sorry for being selfish
for making excuses
I’m here now
and it’s exactly where I want to be
