Crowded

Crowded

A Poem by saratogaparty

I looked across to you from a 

Crowded room and saw you laughing

To someone you barely knew and it 

Was like my eyes were meeting you

For the first time

Except I already knew

You. 

 

We spend Christmas by the same

Fake fire place

Share the same television remote 

And the same dinner table.

Home address

Area code

Moral codes

 

The same bathroom

The same oxygen

DNA

 

Do you remember the bad acne that one

Day I had three years ago?

Or maybe the times I was dancing in 

Sunshine at the age of four

With my long hair and crooked smile

Squinted eyes and 

Innocent confidence 

 

Or maybe the nights I spent 

Crying over god knows what

(Something I barely remember now)

That one boyfriend

Or ex best friend

 

Or maybe the night I got my ears pierced

Or took off my braces 

And smiled for the first time in

Years. 

 

What is it you remember when you look

At me 

 

Because when I look at you

 

I just see 

Home.
