Predict me

He says it’s hard to read me
when I scrub the floor
you want me on my knees
no?
Love will make you do
irrational moves
do you know the taste of my lust
it comes in fragmented sentences
in coffee sips.

Officer, I was distracted
with doctors
and Christmas lights
with past lovers
and modern romance.

He says he has never been
more in love with me
I tell him pinch me
I’m real.
Always laughing at love
and loving to laugh.
Always crying at songs
commercials, news, movies
shows
the dead, the living
~
Always.

When will you ever grow up?
Never.
I always say never
and I mean it.

Officer, I was looking down
I didn’t see the car
I didn’t see the boy
some things you can’t predict.
Some predictions remain in the stars.

  1. Chrissy, I also enjoyed this work but I felt a strong sense of regret and melancholy here. No one else had commented on that so I wasn’t sure if it struck me with a very different chord than others or even what the author perhaps intended.
