When you realize you can practically track down how someone looked like every year, Down to months and days, depending on how often they update their social media. There once was a time people remembered each other through memory not filters.
This morning my teacher wrote on the board “When was the last time you walked away from something or someone”
I can’t remember a time where i walked away from something or someone. I know i have at some point in my life, but right now the only walking i remember is me coming to school this morning. This thought lead me to all the memories i had walking to school. As a child and newly landed immigrant my siblings and i would hold hands and walk to school. Then slowly as the years passed and my siblings graduated i had less hands to hold, which motivated me to make friends so that at least if i if i didn’t have any hands to hold; i had companions which walked the same path as i did. The same companions i walked to school with this morning. So i guess what i’m trying to say is that, although i do not recall walking away from someone i do remember walking next to them.
Take good care of your crazy heart
why more time.
Such; which are kept
she told him one
Whispering as the words rode her breath
He listened. Inventively.
she made sure he did
A smile arose from his face
She responded with a quite laugh
He turned his head to face hers
Her hand drifted from his ear
Then he stared, and examined; putting words to face
She paid attention, with envy of how he did that
He read her like an unexplored book
she wondered if he would ever “love her too”
He decided he was going to take his time with this book
Then he said “i always have”
