Somewhere There Is Someone

Somewhere there is someone making tomato sourdough soup for one. Somewhere there is someone snuggling under a blanket Grandma made. Somewhere there is someone opening a letter signed all the x’s and all the o’s.

Somewhere there is someone ordering something to go. Somewhere there is someone giving something a first, second, third chance. Somewhere there is someone feeling newly appreciative of the fork.

Somewhere there is someone with only one square of toilet paper left on the roll. Somewhere there is someone glad to have shoved the paper towel supply under the sink. Somewhere there is someone buying lemon-scented cleaner.

Somewhere there is someone sitting in a window watching it rain. Somewhere there is someone wishing they’d reached for not-suede boots. Somewhere there is someone praying for a storm.

Somewhere there is someone picking out their own flowers. Somewhere there is someone with fields and fields of them. Somewhere there is someone who doesn’t own a vase.

Somewhere there is someone feeling like thank you isn’t quite enough. Somewhere there is someone who wants to get away. Somewhere there is someone who wants someone to go away with.

Somewhere there is someone bored beyond belief. Somewhere there is someone thinking about what’s for lunch. Somewhere there is someone still feeling slightly badly about what was for breakfast.

Somewhere there is someone who loves steak, medium rare. Somewhere there is someone who loves aioli but hates mayonnaise. Somewhere there is someone who would like the option to panini every sandwich ever.

Somewhere there is someone hoping the phone will ring. Somewhere there is someone letting it go straight to voicemail. Somewhere there is someone trying not to think about these things.

Somewhere there is someone with brown sugar blondie crumbs on their lap. Somewhere there is someone who smells like cinnamon. Somewhere there is someone with a carton of milk that hasn’t gone bad yet.

Somewhere there is someone on their way to nowhere in particular. Somewhere there is someone sometimes happy and sometimes so, so sad. Somewhere there is someone paralyzed by indecision.

Somewhere there is someone with an email marked as unread in their inbox. Somewhere there is someone who just can’t see how it would ever work. Somewhere there is someone who has forgotten how a first kiss feels.

Somewhere there is someone going to bed too late. Somewhere there is someone doodling on a notepad. Somewhere there is someone writing something they’ll never send.

Somewhere there is someone savoring their first sip of coffee. Somewhere there is someone eating strawberry pie — time of day be damned. Somewhere there is someone feeling so much better, out in the sun.

unnamed-5

Somewhere there is someone throwing away all of the clothes that have got to go. Somewhere there is someone feeling more excited than anxious. Somewhere there is someone dancing, singing, laughing.

Somewhere there is someone reading. Somewhere there is someone thinking I’m all alone. Somewhere there is someone thinking no, you’re not.
