Speak.

“Hey.”

You know that you are the only one online at ungodly hours

Or on someone’s mind

When this greeting feels random

And just sits awkwardly in your inbox

Waiting for a reply.

“How are you?”

Should I answer honestly

Or would sugarcoating be better

So the conversation will not

Get too

Personal?

“It has been a long time since we last met, huh?”

Yes, I think so

Because now when I try picturing your face

Everything is a blur and I cannot remember the way you

Smile or laugh or talk

Or even put a

Voice

To your words.

“Maybe we should meet up soon to catch up.”

Maybe

Maybe not.

“I don’t really remember you being this quiet.”

I don’t remember you

Starting a conversation voluntarily

With words that did not hurt and

Burn.

“Penny for your thoughts?”

How about

Yours?
