“You’re the best.” by Julia on her couch

You’re the best at building walls
At saying you’ve seen them
At saying you know me
You’re the best at holding up memories to the light so I can see them better
At making me smile
At interrupting me when I’m trying to ignore you
You’re the best at beating me to an I Love You in every conversation
At folding up the night into a door slam
Into a hug
Into a hula hoop left perfectly spinning
You’re the best at saying sorry
When you know it’s ending
When you think I want to hear it
When you need to apologize to yourself as much as you do to me
You’re the best at walking long distances
Without any music
Any distractions
Without wishing you were
already there
