This Close To That

My fingers set me moving to lead me here

and two lines in and I’m still not sure where here is

yet I keep typing

I could check a dictionary to find the right word

I could check an atlas to remind me

here I am

I could check my philosophy textbook

to tell me

I think therefore I am

or I could check my side-view mirror

to see that objects in the mirror are closer than they appear

cause right now I only exist in your eyes

so you tell me

how we got here

and I’d be eternally grateful

if we could kiss

and outlast

the next

and final

line.

      Thank you a lot. (I don’t know how to make an emoticon, so, just imagine an emoticon of me playing twister with an octopus smiling while sipping a cup of cheer.)
