maybe love


As I walk down the street,
Alone this time,
I take in every road sign,
Every shopfront, 
Every curb and crossing.
I pause to peer into empty cafés
And look at vacant bar stools.

I picture you sitting in every spot,
Reclining on the couch in the doctor's waiting room,
Flicking through an old magazine,
Waiting for the green light,
Walking through revolving doors at the old hotel.
Because I'm worried that you'll be my reality
And I have to make sure you fit.

  5. as i close my eyes and repeat every stanza in my mind, i can totally imagine myself experiencing this real time, though metaphorically speaking. this is beautiful with a tinge of sadness from the reality of life.

    Sometimes I worry about the amount of time I spend worrying on whether my bf and I will fit ;)
