NaPoWriMo #11 2017

It's funny, today is the
anniversary of the day
you asked me out and
I ran away through
the library without
answering -

Last year, the year before,
and even before that, today
was a rough one to get through,
but honestly, today wasn't
all that bad. If it weren't for
a scheduled blog post I wrote,
like forever ago, I wouldn't have
even remembered any of this.

There were no tears today,
not when I got out of work
and not when a customer
with your name would have
otherwise made me scream

and I didn't feel the need to
flip through any old books,
I didn't look at pictures of
our first or final days at all.

Funny, everyone told me,
they would understand it if

I never got over you,
but I honestly think
I have.
