"I'd trade my soul"

are these words mine to share?

are these words mine to share? is your hand mine to hold?

are these words mine to share? is your hand mine to hold? is your heart mine to love?

is this even my soul?

have we met before?

Louis Armstrong fills our silence

Louis Armstrong fills our silence with strong coffee and laughter

Louis Armstrong fills our silence with strong coffee and laughter dried petals and yellowing notes

Louis Armstrong fills our silence with strong coffee and laughter dried petals and yellowing notes from a time before us

poetry lingers along the spaces of our breaths

poetry lingers along the spaces of our breaths song

poetry lingers along the spaces of our breaths song after song

poetry lingers along the spaces of our breaths song after song after song

poetry lingers along the spaces of our breaths song after song after song melodies that spark memories

poetry lingers along the spaces of our breaths song after song after song melodies that spark memories I didn’t even know I had

the air smells

the air smells of perfume rubbed on letters

the air smells of perfume rubbed on letters of tears caused by empty promises

the air smells of perfume rubbed on letters of tears caused by empty promises of you

in another life,

in another life, you told me that you loved me

in another life, you told me that you loved me at that time,

in another life, you told me that you loved me at that time, I didn’t know what that meant,

in another life, you told me that you loved me at that time, I didn’t know what that meant, but

in another life, you told me that you loved me at that time, I didn’t know what that meant, but I believed you nonetheless

in this life

in this life, we are strangers

you tell me

that I look familiar

that this feeling seems familiar

that your old soul knows this old soul

that you’d trade your soul to keep feeling this way

and I have a feeling that

and I have a feeling that somebody already did.
