Hello, my poetic peeps! I hope you are all doing well.
Here is a poem about happiness, a glass vase, and a parachute.
Thoughts and You
Thoughts line my mind like a parachute,
Visualizations of you, with me,
And the kindness behind your pool-like eyes
(I think I am on the diving board already).
My heart is a glass vase that has a chip at its base
From when the last caretaker dropped it
Onto the concrete floor.
You fill the edges of my smiles with the lightness
Of cream cheese,
Even though I do not care about calories when you are around
You are the wisdom, the sun, and the sand
That falls through my toes one grain at a time
Onto a surface soft as a pillow
As I lay my head on your shoulder and trust in your soul.
