That Thing I Told You Once

Remember that thing I told you once?

It was funny and startling

And unexpected. Neither of us expected it,

So we laughed.

Do you remember that thing?

It left behind a feeling, like sadness not but sadness.

We weren’t sad.

But we were like sad.

Hollow. Melancholy, looking straight into our hollowness.

Do you remember that thing? I only told you it that once.

I wish I had told it to you every day since because after I said it after we laughed and grew quiet with empty melancholy, you turned to me. In the quiet left behind by whatever I said, you placed your hand on my leg, and you kissed my lips.

It was the first time you kissed me.

Do you remember that thing I told you once? Right before you kissed me on my lips?

I wish I could remember what it was.

I just remember you. Pretty, startled, kissable you.
