Late Night Love Note to Self

Things are dark and bleak?

        Because you think you lost someone?

                Perhaps your older self?

Glitz and glam surrounded; picture perfect, but

        Only smile because you have to?

        Only drive by the head, and not the heart?

        Only abide by the rules of the road?

The crowd thins out, the noises fade away

The appeasers take a bow;

                And it's only you and your thoughts now? Alone?

Flashbacks of happier nights and sunnier days haunt you?

        Of different cities?

        Of walks by the Thames with warm wine in your hand?

        Of lounging on park benches before the city wakes up?

Do you cover your ears when

        the graffities scream "Listen to this wall?"

Do you ignore the signs of "rewriting the stars"?

        Don't grieve though -

        In a parallel world, in a faraway heart,

        Nothing changed, and you should

                Never forget to love yourself

                Never let that workout routine fall off your plate

                Never ignore that pledge of eating right and kicking bad habits

                Never stop singing wistfully in your raspy soothing voice

                Never stop clicking those random Insta shots of bejeweled fingers

                        Because Life is too short to not wait

                        Because WHAT IF

She reemerges....

        Your lost self,

And melts your smitten soul once again?
