i thought about you today

i thought about you today we were talking about the other night  and my resistance to That subject we were talking about that moment  that precise instant in which emotionally and physically i split i thought about you today and i got ANGRY i got angry because it seems whenever we talk about, engage in,  whenever i think about That subject i think of you i thought about you today No! i saw you again and i cried my heart broke when i thought, when i saw her tiny body lost in the naked enormity of yours when i thought how her body was mine i thought about you today when you called and told me about your newborn son when i saw his picture on my fridge and i wondered, i worried about his future i thought about you today when i took that medicine because i never was thin enough and i never will be when i looked in the mirror  as a child and saw a woman i thought about you today when we were making love  i tried to ignore you but  you pushed on into my  awareness funny, isn't that what you always did? i thought about you today  and i longed for the day i wondered if it would ever come and i wondered if i would stay i wondered if ever i would be able to talk about, engage in That subject and not say i thought about you today
