POEM| Searching For You

We both needed each other
It was supposed to be a temporary arrangement
Me, getting over a bad breakup
You, looking for fun

The attraction was immediate
and we both couldn’t help ourselves
We knew we wouldn’t work
in the real world,
but we lived in the fantasy

for as long as we could
We told each other
the things that mattered
but left out the important details
to keep things almost anonymous
You gave me hope and joy

in such a short moment
that I believed I could finally heal
and be whole again in my reality
So why am I searching everywhere for you
even though I don’t know your name
