it's 3am and i am
watching a movie
about a lonely old man who found love
too late. i notice that my throat is parched
dry. i am flooded with the desire to fall in
love, like him. i get up to pour myself a drink.
the wine is crisp and bright and smells
good. it tastes like the days i want to spend with you.
i pour myself another glass, i pretend
that i am pouring liquid love
and drink it like i drink you.
