- Ellison, Two Days With You Felt Like An Eternity And I Want That Back

We walked through the cemetery
looking at graves
and the names of people
we will never know

I never knew comfortable silence
until you.

We climbed trains 
peeking through the windows
at places that haven’t been touched 
in a while

I never knew I could share adventure
until you

We walked along the tracks
to the park, where we sat by the water
and watched the sun slowly start to set
and then began to head back

I never knew I could feel safe outside at night
until you

I learned you like the color green
your favorite number is thirteen
and that you aren’t your parents’ favorite
and that you are perfect

and I never knew that people like you existed
until you
