About to kiss, my mind slips
My heart skips
As the truth nears
And all my fears disappear
When you pull me back
To the reality I lack
As your thumb traces my chin
I can’t help but grin as you pull me in
I admit defeat and our lips meet.
The magical sensation
Of instant gratification.
I must have hit my head falling for you
In this world that is brand new.
Just walk right by-
Before your eyes lock
On the reflection
That isn’t yours.
She looks like you,
But she’s grinning a toothy smile
While your lips are pressed tight.
Her gaze holds you-
And before you know it
You’re leaning closer…
Hands reach out from the glass
Force your head to make impact with the mirror-
Rings in your ears as
It is cold
Dreary damp and dark
Nothing to keep me company
But the absence of
Your smiles as a tickle touches your sides
Brought from unexpected fingers
Your eyes as they stare deeply into mine
Telling each other secrets of their own
Your hand grasping mine
A lifeline holding me next to you
Grounded in our world
Your laugh as it sings melodies into the air
A tune I would often long to hear
You. Only a memory
That I can’t hold on to
Beyond this journey
From life to… The unexpected.
You’re alive while I’m here.
You are lost to me
But I”ll be here
Waiting for you to join me.
Greet you with
All the joys we once shared.
You will find me
And we will
Never be lost again.
A child’s mind cracked open wide
For learning and growing
Walking all alone, their own stride
With confidence showing.
But soon they will grow much too big
And forget their own self.
They will have to search hard and dig,
Wiping dust off the shelf.
They will look back with a smile
On all the things they learned-
How could they forget? A long while…
My, how the tables turned!

Chirping perching sing me song
Birds singing through the dusk and dawn
Show them singing is never wrong
Chirping! Perching! … Sing me a song!
Just keep on singing all day long
‘Til beauty has overcome brawn
Chirping… Perching… Sing me a song
Birds, singing through the dusk… and dawn.
NaPoWriMo prompt for day 23
Spring is like a perhaps hand
With fine lines that grow
After white Winter has thawed
To create warmth
And defrost you.
This hand creates life
When touching nature
And perhaps will bring smiles to pleasant neighbors.
This hand is weathered
And perhaps quite old,
But this hand brings us youth annually.
Yes, perhaps Spring is like a hand.

That dreamed of men
Strong enough to support her
Fell in love with a boy
That needed to be uplifted
To feel loved.
Who never wanted to grow up
Or stop having fun
Fell in love with a girl
Who grew up much too fast
And never looked back at her youth.
A girl and a boy
Met and fell in love
They were everything
They ever needed.
