To Feel That Way Again


Tuttle Creek, spring semester
Convinced and finally alone
The promise of happily ever after
With the help of a seductive cove.
Clothes drapped over fringe
Growth no higher than our knees
As summer promised a convenient hinge
And tree buds blossomed into leaves.
Warm air cradled doubt
While we dipped and slid with haste
A runner’s legs supported me
Mine, wrapped around his waist.
Water clutching nature
Connecting, skin to skin
Laughter echoed pleasure
I want to feel that way again.

  3. Each line read, I felt as though I was getting closer to avoid using a long lens to capture this wording of life
