Girlfriend

I know you, beautiful woman

You smile and I smile with you

Wave your hand, yes I’m coming

To witness you brush your hair

To help you plait it pretty

To sit in the kitchen as it fills will smells of baking love

Our faces get close as we talk in small whispers

Our personhoods dissolve by secret sharing

We drink and laugh past midnight, we

Sing songs of the other that becomes the self

One thought on “Girlfriend

  1. This is a wonderful line : “Our personhoods dissolve by secret sharing” AND so is this:
    “Sing songs of the other that becomes the self.” You captured some essence of friendship preserved it in those words- how impossible is that and yet here you are! I had to repeat the first line several times because it was so meaningful and so (I know- cliche! but-) deep.
