Invasive Thoughts

I still dream about you.

An artificial tree in the window of a small coffee shop with songbirds dangling from the branches.

Cyclamen in a circle in the grass looking like a fairy ring.

A cappuccino with hints of cinnamon floating on the top refusing to settle.

Last night was rough, I kept thinking of you and it made my sleep restless.

I don't know what brought you to mind but the past kept memories alive

the thoughts in my mind circled like the tiny fly next to me,

they wanted to escape but I shoved them back in

and killed them against the window staring at the sun beating down on the off black pavement,

its last image before its life ended.
