Is

there are no
should have
could have beens

there are no
never was is

there are no
situations of circumstances
other than what is

no other outcomes
no more loves
no more unresolveds
they don't exist

there is nothing
to miss
because nothing
exists

Nothing
that is
but this.

-just learn to like it. :)

I wrote this about a man who had "other commitments" (he was married to woman and had kids) but still it was a passionate affair and we are close to this day. I wrote this about six years ago. He called me from Shanghai "just to say hi." It was one of the most romantic gestures I had ever received. Anyway...here's what I penned after I hung up the phone...


Sharing Shanghai
by Lee

It's noon here but it's midnight over there.
"The city's a sea of stars," you said.
Then you described the warm China breeze
As it touched your skin and
Whispered some new words you'd just learned in Cantonese.

I never know where you're going and
It seems I'm always running behind--
Never sure of where things stand.
Just when I give up and write it all off
You offer me your hand.

I take a deep breath and wonder where you are now.
Well, Tuesday you're in Paris
And I believe Thursday you'll be in Dubai.
I just wanted to take this opportunity
To say thanks for sharing Shanghai.
