I’ll Write About You One Day

I know I’ve made it when
The barista has my coffee ready before I’ve even finished ordering.
To be remembered can seem so small,
But to me it is everything.

A reminder of the way things used to be.

I want to know what it’s like to not wait by my phone on a Friday night.
To feel no fear,
Only comfort.
Knowing you’ll always come back to me.

Standing in an empty fountain
In downtown Chicago on a January night in 2018,
That was the first time I knew what it was like to be in love.
I was afraid, but I followed you anyway.

When you start to view people as
“Experiences for my memoir”
Then you know.

This is not how things used to be.
