When I met you

when asked, we never said where we met
in the hospital on the sixth floor
where the doctors keep secrets tucked in lab coats while the patients pace, asleep
it was there that I saw you, against the cold cafeteria wall
you had your back turned to me but I knew it was you
you said you were forty years old but you looked twenty two
we played ping pong in the front room
the one overlooking the city, the very placed that swallowed us whole
our hearts jumped with every bounce of the ball
you made me smile again, I forgot all the pain
in our hour of darkness we laughed so bright
we aren't sick we said, we aren't scared of the night
