VIDEO CALL WITH YOU
Instead of calls and text,
now we video call once in a while.
I stand in my moonlit balcony
and you lie on your well-lit bed,
and we giggle at each other
for ten minutes like kids.
I screenshot your myriad smiles,
my passport-size face shrouded in darkness
at its top-left corner,
collecting evidences of us happy together.
My teeth shine in the dark, happiness eh,
or the light from your face?
Loving you after losing you
is like this video call with a long lost friend
when ‘meet me soon’ stands for
‘come back and never leave me again.’
