one of the songs might be for alicia

Pendulum

In a week, I won’t see you again

For the rest of my life.
You’re off — oh, the places you’ll go!
While I’m still here,
Here, there, middle of nowhere.

When I think of you, too often, I know,
My mind
Is a pendulum,
Swinging between

Yes, because
Really, how well did I know you?
And

No, because
Though we traveled separate orbits,
Our trajectories were bringing us
Closer and closer.
Between

Yes, because
I won’t have to catch my breath every time you smile at me.
And

No, because
I won’t get to catch my breath every time you smile at me,
Always with a retort on the edge of your tongue,
Every time I laughed at you for launching
Into yet another one of your impassionate speeches.
Between

Yes, because
Maybe now I won’t picture you when I’m singing love songs.
And

No, because
When a sappy song comes on the radio,
I’ll still see you, with those blue eyes that
Never failed to shoot a jolt of energy through me
Every time I met your gaze.
Between

Yes, because
I need to stop pining over
This impossible reality I conjured
With you as the star.
And

No, because
It wasn’t impossible to me,
That we just might have
Someday been more.
