We’d eat avocado toast in our pajamas

Say I love you and mean it

We’d walk along roads never walked before

We’d see things in the sky only for our eyes

I remember when I thought the world was always open

Always free to visit

But now I am not so sure

I think my brain is open

Like a jar of mayonnaise on the counter

The contents all mushy and disgusting

Put it back in the fridge

You’ll get a bad case of stomach pains

If you continue to eat what’s in that jar

I wanted to wake up and eat avocado toast with you

In my pajamas when it rains

To wake up and see a friendly arm

Lapsed askew across my shoulder

We’d laugh because of breath

That’s bad, bad like that mayo in the jar

Kiss because its what lips are made for

Lick at the teeth

The taste is always the same

Like avocado toast in the rain

Sitting in my pajamas

A cup of coffee

Emptied of its contents

I watch the rain

Sitting in my pajamas

And the toast only has butter

Avocados are hard to findavocado-lot-849683

When you shop for them in the rain

Alone

Sitting at a table with an empty cup in hand

I find life is always repeating the line

We’d eat avocado toast in our pajamas

Say I love you and mean it

We’d walk along roads never walked before

We’d see things in the sky only for our eyes

I remember when I thought the world was always open

Always free to visit

But now I am not so sure

Because I’m eating toast alone

With an empty cup beside

 

 

Thank you for reading.  I enjoyed writing this little poem (part of the Intermission Poetry collection).  I hope you all have a fantastic day of seeking and searching and hopefully finding what you are looking for, if not more. 

Good night Grace 🙂  ❤
