we haven't talked
(written, emailed, called, texted, sung, laughed, met eyes, spoken, understood, caught up, shaken hands, told stories, contacted one another in any way)
in four months.
it's eating me up.
it's setting me free.
please tell me if i am right or wrong
so i can stop thinking about it so much.
he is my father in some ways, but not all ways.
i cannot forget that.
(please don't tell him.)
