this one-of-a-kind 1 a.m.

in the office backyard

 

how beautiful it is

to share a moment, a memory, a pizza, a smile,

how the sentences sound more coherent than they are

how the words feel more intoxicating than the joint

how the faces blur 

like they haven’t seen any clearer

how impossible it feels now

to forget that we forgot everything for a second

and broke down laughing

how contagious the giggle, how delicate, how piercing,

how eager i am

to gamble it all this moment

and break down that exact way all over again

and again

we look at one another

as if we’ve got a forever together 

and how it doesn’t matter if we’ve not

how the night rolls so much light into itself despite the darkness

how it knows the magic trick

how i get up from the stairs, 

lookup at the moon, wink a smile

how he knows everything

how i wish you knew too.
