Esther Heboyan: PROVENCE-PARIS

Outside darkness
flows
swaying along
railways
i so wish
i could hold it
inside
all lights
grate
like a razor’s edge
whereas
across the aisle
lovers
grasp hands
kiss lips
oblivious to
un-lovers
you so wish
you could love too
but instead
eyes closed
we look away
to search
that space
replete with silences
and fidget
in our seats
to undo
our redundant selves
still
on the station platform
you may have said
shall we meet again
i don’t remember
saying
love trains are
so scarce these days

I was on that station platform with the girl I love.

I love you.
