thoughts

if you’ve ever sat on a park bench
alone
on a sunny afternoon watching
people laugh
or
been to a cafe
holding a book like
it was the most joyous company
you’ve ever had.
with a lose grip, eyes fixed
turning pages while periodically
sipping
coffee, wishing you had
added more sugar.
doing everything you can
to make it seem like you
belong.
you read.
when you were actually
listening to people conversing.
trying to follow their ideas,
talk of summer plans, latest bands
recipe slips.
then you’ll understand that when
you find someone who fills
your solitude,
there is something about
love
that makes sleeping feel
useless.
