Send

by remembertoexhale

That single button that can change everything
the vessel that carries the most unimportant messages
the cursor flashing, waiting for your finger to pluck up the courage to
hit send on the ones that matter
and as time slows
you think the cursor slows also
the minutes tick by
and you wonder if “I Love you”
is appropriate facebook message material
and nothing worth saying is worth instant texting
nothing is really instant isn’t it though?
instant noodles take two minutes
instant coffee takes the time it takes for the kettle to boil
love takes more than an instant to garner
and instant messaging may get an instant reply
but it doesn’t close the distance
an least at all those goodbyes on the thread
are also open to “hellos” once again
