see you in a month (day two)

see you in a month

 

he said to her

 

i’m not done with you

i’m just putting you on pause

 

as if life actually worked out that way

as if we were machines you could just stop when convenient

as if in place of her heart

are gears and valves

 

because that’s how we all look on the inside

apparently

 

if you cut her

she will bleed oil

 

we are not capable of stopping something like love

 

unless he believes he’s in every romantic comedy ever made

and it’s at the one part where they’re about to kiss

and he gets a phone call

THAT COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING

and he says

hold that thought

only to come back and find that she’s slipped into something a little more comfortable

(which happens to be nothing at all)

 

they embrace

and make passionate love until the morning hours

cuddle

and she wakes up to find that he’s made a light brunch

(her favorites because he pays attention like that)

and they do it all over again

 

(at least that’s how it would happen in my movie)

 

y’all

it doesn’t work that way

 

we have no buttons to push

to pause

 

we feel

 

it’s hard to stop

damn near impossible

sometimes

 

but when you act like that guy

you make it pretty easy to move on
