It’s been a long time since my heart has soared. The days flickering by. Rolling through the channels trying to find something new. Alan Watts plays in the back-screaming LIFE. My girlfriend says, "baby, just get in the car." Sitting in the passenger seat heading to wherever next. Your face shines through rear view mirror. A smirk of goodbye. ******* out to the sky. Screaming, “what is life after this?” Holding onto eachother like there’s no life left to grasp. This is my sign that life does get better after this. The world is closed but our hearts open in a 24-hour vacancy. She says, “do you remember when we first met?” Apple blossoms and moon shine between her lips. A taste of something I miss. Her red stained lips traced the rim of her cup. Yelling at the bar “I just can’t get enough”. Her foot stomping at the bar stool. Just one more song please. Just one more dance. Just one more moment. & we keep grasping for those old moments. A reminder to us that life is our last call.
