#13. Games in which we relearn everything

“Twenty Questions.”

That’s the first thing you say when we met after 6 years.

We were best friends then.

In my mind, we always were.

When you asked the first question,

I knew, that we

will always be best friends,

but new people to each other.

This is how I feel when I meet my school friends after months.

Parvathi and I are attempting Rebirth in April in July, prompts created by JR Rogue and Kat Savage.

 

#5. Late Night Vices

#5. Late Night Vices

I slowly tip-toe around the coffee table

making sure I don’t hit my little toe

at the table leg and scream out loud, 

waking the entire Home. 

I sneak towards the kitchen, eyeing the fridge.

I look around, making sure no one is

up and about at this late hour,

and I open the freezer on top. 

I grab the pack and close the door

when I hear a gasp.

I turn round on my heels and seeing you

relieves my tension of being caught. 

“You too?” I whisper?

You simply nod, with a calm expression.

I take two spoons out of the drawer

and beckon you forward with one. 

You oblige; we slide down next to each other,

talking silently about the secrets of the universe,

while unconsciously taking turns in

digging our spoons in the large

tub of Choco Xcess.  

I think this is my favourite poem that I’ve ever written so far!

This poem is inspired by the book, The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L Armentrout.
