Prose and poetry,  Relationships

everything is better when it’s new

new, beach, sea, blue, brown, poetry, love, relationships

that new car smell
a fresh pack of cigarettes
an unopened book –
newness makes us believe,
hope for something
better
than what we have
now.
if that’s the case,
then why
do i crave
the familiarity of
your face
your gaze
and
your arms as they graze
against mine?
newness
is overrated.
i long
for you
in the long
haul.
