I Found You Again


Today I found you.
I didn’t find you in the way I ever wanted to find you.

I found you in the iMessage transcripts I didn’t even know
existed in the insides of my computer.
There you were,
your words, crawling through the insides of my machine.
And everything of mine is saved in the cloud,
so you must be floating there, too.

I swear I deleted the messages, but
there you were.
Every first conversation, down to our last conversion
forever embedded in my hard drive.

Just when I thought you were gone,
from my memory, from my life,
you appeared yet once again.

will you ever leave?
