The Shirt

Reb, blue, brown

That’s the colors of the shirt I worn

Red, blue, brown

That’s what I’m wearing now

Its sleeves are long enough to hide my elbows

Long enough to hide my imperfections

Long enough to make me feel secure

Long enough to let me think it’s your arms holding mine

Red, blue, brown

That’s the colors of the shirt I’m wearing

Red, blue, brown

With lines connecting and intersecting

It’s hugging me on my body

Making me feel warm

Making me think of you

Making me think of us

I’m looking down at the shirt I’m wearing

I’m wishing the sleeves are your arms

I’m missing your hugs because of its warmth

I’m hoping it’s your chest that touches my back

Red, blue, brown

That’s the shirt I’m wearing

That’s your shirt I’m wearing

And the owner is the one I’m missing
