Summer and Smoke


Love falls in between

the known

the unknowns

the familiar

the strange

maybe I don’t know you at all

out there

in a world separate to mine


It filled up to the top

Collectibles of you

Drawers like this one are many

In my heart


You stuttered

The first time you said I love you

The words

surrounded me

Like layers of winter sweaters

My heart trembled

When I decided to stop caring

As if you are

The sun

The stars

The universe

My tears dried

One day soon

I will become like you

You will become like me

Summer and Smoke
