like hearing his voice on an old saved message,
makes me kind of
he sounds older now.
(well, duh, he is older).
no flip-flopping heart motions or catching my breath.
only a thought, it’s just a thought.
a quiet thought.
no fantasies of ‘what might have been’
angry outbursts of ‘how could you’.
it’ll be nice when i have someone in my life
— whose voice makes me happy to hear
(in that certain part of my heart dedicated to romance)
