POETRY: Lingering

Lingering

You brush over my mind,

Like a light feather on my skin.

I see your melting eyes,

And your voice seems to sing.

 

I’ve moved on and love all,

That I’ve achieved and who I am,

But here you are once more,

On my mind again.

 

Here you are once more,

Like an image flickering by.

You’re reachable with effort,

Like a balloon that’s flown high.

 

Yet the time and space apart,

Makes it like a dream.

Intangible and almost forbidden,

Something that could’ve been.

 

How can it be so long?

We’ve both grown and moved on.

Yet I don’t need to ask,

To know I’m not your past.

 

We will always be connected,

Even when far apart,

An invisible link protected,

A speckle stuck on the heart.

POETRY: Summer

Summer

A light buzzing,

A slight breeze,

Thriving gardens,

Sundrenched trees.

 

A road-trip out,

And we’re at the beach.

Golden specks,

Memories.
