As It Seemed

If everything
were as it seemed to be
then I wouldn’t be thinking of you right now,
If everything
went about in the most normal way
then I wouldn’t be writing this about you,
If everything and everyone had one thought
that I was the same as I always had been,
then I wouldn’t be writing these words,
and thinking these thoughts
and wondering what you were doing right now
and why we weren’t together?
Doing and thinking these thoughts together,
if everything was
as it seemed…
