A Sudden Realization At Cafe Milano, Berkeley

my heart burns and aches for you

when I abandon you
I feel it most
when I pick up a book or go for a run
when I’m out and about having fun
at a bar with friends and
conversing about philosophy and trends

I can’t help but think about what I could be doing with you,
what I could tell you about this moment
my thoughts,
the environment,
and what makes me feel alive
right now.

If I don’t tell you I will forget.

and often times, I do.
I forget to tell you
I forget what to say
because in those moments
I forgot to live.
so focused on you
so obsessed with an idea
that I confuse myself
remove myself
from those moments

yet you welcome me again, with open arms
we start over—a fresh new page each time
you take me
into other worlds.
