What Was Left Behind


Remind me of that night, in that moment I asked you to listen. Wind through the trees. Cars passing by. Whatever that sound was that lizard made. The streets lights were still amber, and we were alone in those shadows. Remind me, that was after I first kissed you, all those years ago.

Tell me again, why it was you smiled. That this was something we wanted to do all day.

That parting was not in our minds. That all the words we spat into each other, the arguments, and finally those papers signed and the ink dried.

Seems as if that night never happened. None of the nights spent laughing, dreaming.

None and gone. As much as the leaves in that tree went still as the wind left, and the moment it left behind, that smile and the words “I’ll see you tomorrow.”
