What in the World is the World Telling Me

Long day. Busy day. Exhausted, but happy.
I come home. Unread messages.
All standard, typical, the normal…

…Except one.
But it’s normal,
But it’s not,
Because your name jumps out at me.
The message is asking if I know you.
It’s automated, of course.
But it knows I know.
I see you.

Oh gods,
And until now,
I hadn’t even realized
How long it had been.

Hot day, long day. Late afternoon.
I walk home, past a place I don’t want to be…
But hope that everything will be okay…

…Except it wasn’t.
But I should have known,
But I never expected it,
As I see him again. Him. Again.
The world is asking if I remember.
Yes. I do. Of course.
But is that him? …Yes.
I see him.

Oh gods,
And until now,
I hadn’t even realized
How long it had been.

What in the world is the world telling me?
What in the world?
What…
Is happening?

  1. Listen to the Universe and its subtle messages, that’s what the ancients said. Perhaps there’s merit in that, hmm? Yeah, we’ve all been thru this when someone we’re trying to forget pops up from the past and it all comes back to us too suddenly. Nice piece!
