Navigating my through a crowded mall,
my name hollered from a voice and face that stagnated me from my path
surprised, smile, and laugh is how I immediately reacted
Long time no see!
4 years to be exact
Starting a conversation as we began reminiscing (What’s good!?)
Sidetracked by a face with a name I could not remember
You better think quick so you can make this situation better!
Sparking and tracing the neurons to find it
Unable too so I’m staring at a “NO ONE”
Needing to smooth the awkwardness that I could feel down in my parched throat
Pressure building and thickening as I could hear heavy footsteps in the background smothering my inner thoughts from forming
Handing him my phone so he can leave himself as a contact
I GOT A NAME (YES)
Imagining if he hadn’t
It would have been been , what’s up long time no see?
With me trying my best to flee out of plans he wanted to do with me.
Long time no see
Doesn’t matter the time or place
Will something I’ll try my best not to erase

This resonates with me. Meet many people can’t recall name and worry about being embarrassed.
