brown and blue

i saw you first

inhaled my past down into my stomach
or somewhere else to sit and sink
and leave me all alone

to see you

and as i am looking

all of these very many gorgeous visions are like far away
moments i remember dreaming of
for years
and i find it all with you

looking like nothing else

and as i am pretending i know your arms
and how your sweat smells

i hear your voice for the first time of our forever
i knew it began then

on a porch
that never would have mattered until
we both stood there

apart
but listening

looking
at you

i dont remember my pace
approaching you
or my voice
asking you for a cigarette
because right then,
that was all we had

a common killing

something i found that night
and clung onto

i was hoping it would be like a serenade
and we would walk away together
to talk
for hours
to wrap up in us

but it wasnt till the night after
when you heard me too

and we really

saw

each other

through our voices and brains

and touched
and i was so up there
so unbelievably far away from the earth
and anyone
but you

i only saw you
i saw you first
and forever

brown and blue
