Love in the 21st century

Reflected back

Hold the picture still

Memories more fluent

Tales of the past

Float to the top



Then comes love 

When we had it together

When nothing mattered 

Puddles of sadness 

Staining your cotton

Thoughts of leaving

Paired with bliss

Never knowing 

What was the right thing to



Be present in these moments 

Our relationship needed a reheat

The leftovers were stale

We were both in the opposite sides of right

Never being enough 

Pint sized bandaids 

In the flavor of mint chip and rocky road

In the end you got the sanity

And I got the heartache
