I wanted to walk

hooping unbeknownst readers

thus, tis one objective when attempting
     to corral rampant thoughts,

The heart, the warmest sea;
night dives in
chasing dreams,
then suddenly
the day has come ashore;
a smile crawls blissfully
and parts the waves
to reach the sun
to ask for more
of the same
exchange of warmth

Vast lists of names at cenotaphs
on crosses, in columns of newspapers,
inscribed by those who lived, for those
I never knew so can't remember.

Reduced to uniform remains,
some named 'Soldier of the Great War'.
A greatness in numbers lost,
lives wrecked - measures of excess.

November flags dip, bands march,
standing to mark with silence
violence done to those unknown to them.
Some lament more recent deaths.

The piety of war.

Overflowing the chemical reaction to it's combination.

The sweetest recipe;

Sugar, filled with recharging honey of love
surreal to my mouth,
tastes so good.

Marshmallow, dipped with chocolates, and the everlasting hope will.

Vanilla ice cream, dipped with feelings, extending the soft bubble pop to the intestine.
Feeling alive again, contentment keep it.
just tryna write something new!

Fire of your scent,
(one, two, step, three, four, step, dip)
eating at my soul
