You Know Where to Find Me

You Know Where to Find Me

you can find me

where the sun and the clouds forever meet

underneath open sky without rain

aside the ocean situated above the cliffs

you can find my happiness there

you can find me 

where no one truly knows me

out in the center square but within my own thoughts

nothing else exists except that in my mind

in silence i’ll sit behind the man dressed as a younger Michael Jackson

you can find my soul there

you can find me

with the same new friends, attempting to learn the same language

still struggling with the same grammatical concepts

drinking liquor that causes me to forget everything i just learned

with the characters you heard endlessly about

you can find my mind there

you can find me

in the same cafe i loved when i knew you

when i loved you

with the absolutely inattentive waitstaff

writing the book i said i wanted to

the one i wouldn’t stop talking about for a month

finally, here, i’ll be writing those words

you can find my passion there

you can find me

atop of the mountains

running alongside humid, mosquito infested trails

unable to breathe but still alive 

days without service but taking the break you said i needed

you can find my adventure there

you can find me

on the bench overlooking surfer’s peak 

where i wrote you the letters i said i would send

but were never mailed

because i left and lost them sometime in between

you can find us in those letters there

you can find me

in the room overlooking the ocean

where the wind gusts rapidly,

leaving its cold air behind

yet never fails to miss a sunset

every detail of the room we were to live in

will remain exactly as i described

you can find my heart there

and if you still love me, unconditionally,

every piece of me, 

you know where to find me.
