balloon~

pull me close-

i shiver,
congealed ache,
wavelength mismatched

in memoriam
childhood days,
licking pink ice lollies

when the sun, a
passive hemisphere,
kissed lashes with love

and i-
floating on light
remember her fragile touch

-pull me close again

  1. “and i

    remember her fragile touch”

    These lines stood out for me, forming a tender contrast to the joy of childhood innocence by reminding us of its fragility.
