The Constant

by Shani Cruz


It is said that
people must move
with the times or
change accordingly
because nothing
stays the same and
it makes sense to 
some extent but 
doesn't hold true
in all cases
Some things
you never outgrow
like

your favorite song

Orange creamsicles

Soft baked cookies

and shopping rush
on pay day but I 
guess it depends on 
what you consider
important

You 
are 
the constant

Despite tears
impatience
other friends
distance

Eyes met and
made a memory
months ago
and that image
lets me hug 
my pillow
Kiss your picture
Stare starry eyed
at the sky
Wonder about wishing
Leaves me hoping 
for future dreams
My constant
craving 
to touch your heart
Constantly
on my mind
Your friend 
consistently
throughout the
constant tests
thrown our way
My clarity
in indecision
Advice outta
genuine concern
I pray for
our friendship

intimate and constant
