This author really moves me. Fascinating perspective.
Tell me you love me.
Text me, and sign it with kisses,
And maybe even an emoji,
Or a selfie. “What is this?
You call this love?” Definitely.
My lover and I are only a few clicks apart.
Where life, and work, and kids, and stress, has
served to isolate their hearts.
I have a thousand photos of him in my pocket,
And a million “I love you” texts.
All they have are memories of their “young love”
And the empty, loveless marriages that came next.
