I Talk to You the Way Other People Talk to God

I talk to you the way other people talk to God
In silence
Inside my head

Hidden from the rest of the world
With no expectation of response

I talk to you with memories that I believe we share 
Of little things:
A kickball
A piece of sushi
A street sign
A melody


I experience you the way the other people do God
I see you in a cloud
I hear you in a breeze
I taste you in my empty mouth
I feel you in my soul

I love you the way other people love God
In absence
In nothing
In emptiness
With the unquestionable belief in another realm where we will live together forever
