you rambled on about another song
ruining its melody along the way
you spoke more words than a picture could hold
and I confess
while I was staring at you
my mind synapsed away
dreams of romantic past lives
schemes of tricking you to woo
forever circled back to the blaring question
how I could feel more lonely
when our bony knees were touching?

oh my dear,
even my best memories with you were mediocre
again, you choose the movie
the restaurant
the way we would be
put me on mute
make me into the girl of your dreams
(as long as you don’t look me in the eyes,
you can believe you succeeded too.)

I should have missed you more than this
but missing an empty space beside you
is much different than missing
his particular kind of embrace
