could, be, you… [POEM]

i could pretend
like everyone else
to like
everyone else
but why?
when everyone else
is not you

it could be
just me
all by myself
or with anyone else
but i’d rather share life
and anything else
not all by itself
but decided, with you

there could be reason
good reason and cause
sufficient to stall,
or to not see it at all
but how would I pause
as certain imagery crawls
along my memory’s wall
and the only one
that i want to call
is you.
