Wednesdays

She only calls on a Wednesday.
I don’t know why,
it takes until the middle of the week
to realise
she’s lonely, still.

Friendships once forged by displacement now grow frail,
yet still fight the fight that smooth skin has now lost.
For how long?
For how long will I continue to collect you?
For how long will the essence of you I cherish remain,
recognisable to the woven cells, nerves and membrane,
and for what you see(saw) in me the same?

We’re companions who wish we weren’t,
but for the mutual comfort we bring,
might we be nothing?
We’re alien from that world of merged hearts,
but don’t want to be,
on a journey for which we’ve forgotten the start,
but can’t bring ourselves to stop,
although we’ve definitely lost our way.

I hope to hear from you on Wednesday.
