Windblows

Written by: Laura Meese

Turning over and over through the
Hours, my friend. My
Eyes see yours and I know you’re here.
 
When you say “will you still come to see me when
I’m alone and
Not how you remember me?”
Do I know you enough to know?
 
But, see…
Like when the trees bend,
Or when the rain falls…

What am I
Saying?
 
True love waits? What the
Hell is that? I was beginning to think the only thing I’d 
Roll 
Over for would be for a good Cheetos bag.
Upon that occasion, I’d be sure to look
Good for the cashier at the local store. 
Hallelujah!
 
True love waits? What the 
Hell is that? I don’t know
Everything, but I know something.
 
Trees bend.
Rain falls.
Everything dies,
Everyone dies,
Sooner or later.
 
And the only way out
Now is to
Die before something else can kill you.
 
Stop
Telling me about something 
Other than me. My concerns. My
Pathologies. And for God’s sake
Stop saying “true love waits!”
 
Don’t you have somewhere 
Else to be? No? 
Are you lonely? Ah, I see.
Damn you. Leave me be.
 
Sooner or later, all
Things die. But…
I’ve got to admit you’ve taught me something. I 
Learned that all things somewhere, someday also
Live.
