the second time

i don’t have to guess

how it feels to open

and close

where your hands will lead

my searching mind

the way you look

at me

— i’ve seen those eyes

before

you say it

i’ve played it out already

the second time

i don’t have to learn

that memories

— unlike you —

do not have

expiration

dates.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
