Didn’t Exist

I didn’t mind the way that 

I felt

Cold and sweaty palms

Licking my lips

When you called my name

I didn’t mind the way that

Your eyes and long lashes

Seemed to perceive

And pierce a part

Of my lungs that

I didn’t know existed

It was the cold “have been”

That made me wonder

Not the “maybe” or the “will”

It was the “might be happening”

That made me smile and

Laugh

Because

I wanted to tell you more

But I left words

Unsaid

And waited for

You to call

Because in my town

That’s how things were done

In my town that how things were.

The uncertain tone in my

Goodbye

Made you reconsider all the 

Motion and movement that we had

Felt

And I reached to a place

But you were already gone.
