Bench

We walked a little way
see that bench
over there?
I see it
I see it
we sat
we rested
took a break from
it all.

Perhaps we sat
too long
that when we got
up
we wanted
thirsted
for different
different
things.

After so long
I see
I see
see that bench again
the bench that saw
us last
before we left
left it
left each other.

It held our weight
our dreams
our love
and we left it
alone
thirsting
never quite knowing what
to do
with our
leftover selves –
for all that the
bench carried
we’ve forgotten
forgotten
all about that
bench
when we had been
together.

So when you see
that bench
stop awhile
just awhile
ask the bench
how it was
what memories
it held
think of me
think of us
how we used to
be.
