Oil painted red sky summer Blue moon June, and tailor-made memories Skimming the surface like a skipped stone Riding the ripples Of an early summer’s amplitude Like a light ray runaway, Dancing with darkness anxiously on the edge of the abyss A lone wanderer, Searching the soil for some semblance of a soul, but Our bound hands were meant to dig Never to hold
Skip a stone and watch the ripples underneath a gray beard mountain.
I’m starting to understand The slight of hand That it takes to see this world as an ocean So vast and deep With secrets to keep- I spread love on like tanning lotion
(..) I forgot how the sun feels from this perspective As my heart beats quick with/ as if it’s, /To keep up with lost time. I know now I hold the full Collective all the while I stay and destroy the retina’s in my eyes. This time around, Loving me is the new objective- gazing at new found patience with what follows sunrise And left these sands of time- One grain left to fall amongst the Hour, All this chaos I hold inside of me- In-spite of trees that Fear let tower
Ahead of me is too far gone twin flames too, burned away... Lake Eerie drowned our fire quickly/ a parted heart of two; half-hearted sunsets shadowed days, To the boy I thought I knew.
Do you suffocate with silence? Do the sun-rays burn your eyes?
All this technicolor vision Love, Colorblind through cobalt eyes’
(..) I know now of not tomorrow, But sea, to my dismay;
Buzzing blue beetle Tumbling clumsily Over my head; Striking my chest and Falling into my lap, Apparently unbothered. How did you get in? It doesn't matter. I'll place you outside. You open your wings And spring off into the air.
Sweet vanilla kisses, amid an explosion of bubblegum sauce. With lips now blue, we break and share a flake; The chocolate melting in our mouths, Like my heart, the first time I met you. “You’ve got a bit on your nose," I say. Laughing, you wipe it away elegantly. Fresh strawberries planted in eager mouths, Excited eyes blazing in the sun. This love is intoxicating. Sinking satisfyingly into a strawberry bliss, Summer love is planted on the tongue. Savouring: the taste, the moment, savouring the one.
Summer fills me with nostalgia in a way that I cant explain. But when the air hears up and the black ants crawl all over our house I find myself remembering when we covered the window with sheets so we could sleep when it was still light.
Most years I was alone, friends not good enough to contact outside of school. I stayed up late in bed reading every night. It was during summer that I stumbled on my first podcast, on my first ****** novel, on my first question of gender. In the heat of summer I sought change. Alone, I struggled with questions of college and career and the future. I despaired, sobbing into my pillow until I fell asleep.
Summer is full of possibility, of the past, of the future. I caught fireflies out on the lawn, I put cicada husks in a jar and kept a tally, I invented games for myself and my sisters. I work late nights and come home to a warm house. I eat cereal for 3 meals a day. The rules don't apply to Summer.
It is a quarter past June, and already it seems like a record setting summer. Sprinklers and the scent of chlorine filled pools, as I walk in my street-worn shoes to my sanctuary.
The lifeless blacktop park where my will and the heat-embracing pavement meet. A well-manicured backyard tree hangs its verdant leaves just over its owner’s fence. Like a lifeline for life reaching out to me.
I stick and I move, as the sweat cleans the dirt and despair from my face. Like a sunshine superman, I drink UV rays into my bones. Alone I feel whole. The disinfecting flames of summer have begun to melt the cold rot encasing my soul.
Embrace the light from the sun, because one day we will plead with darkness to feel it on our face once more.
Sun comes out and happiness with it Your Heart feels light joy no longer hides Lazy days in the summer haze Only blue skies and memories made
Sunny summer days there’s nothing better everything awakens it heals your pain you can let go and forget the sad and joy floods in I just love the feelings the memories and moments made in the summer days
