When we went for walks
I felt close to you,
warm in you.
Now the routes are blocked.
I have a raging hunger for you,
I am insatiable for ‘us’.
Maybe we can talk our way back together?
Feast on new memories and
go for a walk
because I want to be close to you.
Let’s spend some time building bridges.
Maybe we can talk our way back together,
swallowing each other’s words
to feel near,
feeding ourselves on the sound of our voices,
our hunger satisfied,
we can speak.
For now, we will have to fill
our appetite for each other
with cracking phone lines
and hidden corners to love each other in.
Maybe if we can talk our way back together
we can go for a walk
and be close again.
