Does she think of me
when I think of her
-all the time
can’t get her off my mind
haunting my sweet dreams
and salvaging my nightmares.
Her name, the first word
from my lips each morning
to echo through my thoughts
all day
-Until I sit next to her
then she overcomes my every thought-
I’m asked to speak.
I can’t speak.
They ask again.
The only word on my mind is her name
and multiple thoughts of person called same
I sit silent and hope they’ll move on to someone new
and they do
but what do I do
-about her
can’t I get the nerve
to ask

Does she think of me…
