The New

When I get or experience something new,
I always try to make it feel
Like it’s not as soon as possible,
So that it’d be like
I’d always had or experienced it;
Like it’d never been away.

I guess it’s because
A “new something” is fleeting
While a “something” lasts a little longer.
The transcience of it all saddens me
And so I’m avoiding an attachment to the new.

That’s why I peel off screen protectors,
Drop my things (“accidentially”),
And neglect to mail in my warranties;

Why I sometimes fail to return your calls,
Forget our anniversaries,
And wished I didn’t feel like a teenager
While speaking to you on the phone,
Laughing, gushing, enjoying it all;

Because I’m afraid it’d all end too soon.
