Reminder (Songs) [POEM]

How do you miss what isn’t gone
or try to make right what isn’t wrong

Trying to do both while listening to songs
that remind you of them
Conjuring up a feeling
that isn’t gone
finding lights dim
sparking bright memories
of silly things
that start silly dreams
that survive outside the dark
wishing they would
have a reason to argue
something to spark
the value of that conversation that usually happens
after things went different
like they always did
when you mentioned more
now it’s less
and you want to suggest that you’d be willing
to listening more
whatever it takes
to get you in a positioning force
that might
give you the right to say
goodbye the right way
where gone is just a nights stay
and home is where
the two of you
begin the lights day
and one of you
just might say

Something that makes now
seem like
it never happened
that is
if it ever happens

But,

How do you miss what isn’t gone
or try to make right what isn’t wrong

Trying to do both while listening to songs
that remind you of them

On repeat again

And somehow
seeming to be selected
in order
in order to leave you
rejecting
the borders
testing the boundaries of casual and no attachments
just to see
if something happens
like acting

Scenes from
the predetermined scripts
that slipped your mind
out of your mouth
hopefully into the ears

Of the one
that the song
on the radio
is about.
