memories

i saw you today
through a crowd
of people i didn’t know
and when my eyes
touched your face
a hundred memories
coursed across my skin
as though they were your hands
soft and rough in the black of night

no one noticed
my stillness
in a crowd of laughter
and i smiled
but my heart
wasn’t in it

in another life
we were soul-mates
but some things
are only meant
to happen once
we had our turn
and we sent it up in flames
but that doesn’t
erase the memories
or the longing
