twenty five years

I do not know why
it still surprises me

the way you finish
my sentences

how your text message
mirrors one I have just sent

or in Pictionary
when I have only drawn a heart
and you have already guessed
“heartbroken”

I do not know why
it still surprises me

thanks

I have been
drifting in
and out
of sleep
for days now
oblivious
to everything
except
the need
to take
my pills
and drink
some water
from a glass
that has
never
gone
empty
