I Could Talk To Them For Hours – Written Thursday 16th December 2021 (Aged 46)

I Could Talk To Them For Hours

is that attraction?
i could talk to them for hours
as wine drowns the flowers
and chocolates melt –
on the heat of exploratory conversation
in this new found situation

this is my abode
and this is where i feel low
the night owls find my sleep
only to add a cautionary glow
they engage me
and i wonder what would have happened
in a land that never existed
where fate lines and timelines
where differently twisted

this is my time
overgrown with moss and flowers
this life thing is tricky
upon it, i confess, i have spent hours
hours just trying to fashion something –
that works just about

i can see them –
finding out about me
aware, that every personal piece we share
is something we had to learn
and often, every story shared
was wisdom hard earned
is that attraction?
i could talk to them for hours
