Literature Text

I still think of you sometimes

In the way of 3 am conversations

In the way of cathartic poetry

spoken soft and easy into our

secret atmosphere

a bundle of comforters

between screens


I remember the safety

of distance and the ache

of our emotional proximity

the travesty of platonicity,

unmatched love


I was too lonely even for you

desperate at once alluring, attractive

and then the mystery unraveled

a scenic route to a cul-de-sac.


but you wished me

such happiness! without the romance

of your specific attention

and so well-meaning

your voice, offered to soothe,

only serving to deepen my insomnia


yes, I still think of you often

which is why I can’t sleep
