So recently (read ‘for absolutely ages’), I’ve been appalling at blogging. I legitimately don’t have a reason other than life. I will get better – promise.
Classic Facebook reminded me of a poem I wrote this day last year and so I thought I would get back into the swing of things with another little bit of poetic waffle.
You are familiar; another strange face in the crowd,
Catching my eye, looking away, without breaking our gaze.
It’s only been moments, each moment a year, each year
Lingering on my tongue, bursting.
I breathe in, swallowing memories and water before choking
On air. Your smile revives me and when
I wake, the world is brighter, colours are vivid,
Breathing is stable, easy.
My fingers tremble.
My heartbeat stutters.
Familiar, strange, torturous.
