- - - You came back.

I've been around.

- - - Same.

Should have said something.

- - - That's life.

Do you still write?

- - - Like letters?

You know.

- - - I don't have it in me
- - - anymore.

No heart
for poetry?

- - - No time.

There's always time.

- - - Not if you want to
- - - really get to it. If you want
- - - to get to the heart of it.

I suppose.

- - - It's life!
- - - One day you wake up,
- - - and it's already the next.
- - - There's a poetry there,
- - - if you listen, and I like to think
- - - I'm responsible
- - - for a portion of it,
- - - for making the music that moves me
- - - without my will.

Like you're off in
la la land

- - - piano in a technicolor dream

moving to a bittersweet theme.

- - - What about you? Do you still

Write.

- - - dream?

Neither really.

- - - I never thought
- - - I'd hear you
- - - say that.

I'm not sure when it happened.
One day you wake up and
you're different.
I wish
you could see regrets coming,
and maybe, you know,
not make them.

- - - This is about
- - - the dreams.

Don't you?
Don't you
wish?

- - - You're assuming
- - - I regret.

Don't you.

- - - We're
- - - not
- - - like that, people
- - - who can talk
- - - like that.

And yet,
here we are.

- - - Here we are.

After all
this time and
space.

- - - You
- - - and I.

So we just

- - - don't talk about it.

And
yet

M—

I can't explain
why
even now
the thought of you
SINGS
inside me
and when I dream of you
I dream

I've tried to
go back, believe
me I've tried to rearrange
the words, say it there
instead of here, then
instead of now, when
we could have made it
we would have made it
made so much
together

Our souls
our selves
entangled here in unreal
space, yet real
enough, to say

I did love you and
I do
I always have
I always will.

- - - We can't
- - - be like that
- - - either.

And yet

- - - we are

- - - I know

we are.

I never

- - - but you did.

It was never

It was always

your eyes
your hair
your laugh

- - - The way
- - - you never said
- - - anything
- - - told me
- - - everything
- - - I always wanted
- - - to hear.

There is so much
space
here. Ever notice that?

- - - Sometimes
- - - I want to believe
- - - space
- - - exists to be
- - - explored
- - - mapped
- - - known.

A lack
a void and yet
a hope

- - - An expectation
- - - anticipation
- - - meaning
- - - yet to be

Yet always
already meaningful

- - - I wish

- it could be -

And yet.

- - - We dreamed.

We did.

- - - I did

- - - I do

- - - I always have

- - - and I always will.
