Our Lovely Afternoon
I am baffled and envious that our lovely afternoon was not all that unusual to you,
not something you’re going to need again and again.
I’m too far gone, and so ready to have waited all along
for someone I am overwhelmed to be with,
to while away this funny time of day with, again.
It just feels right, like you’re someone I’ve always known.
Don’t send me back on my own.
But I knew halfway through the afternoon, I wouldn’t see you again.
Like I knew in the quiet of my room, I had to see you again.
I want to see you again.
