Our summer, supported by fragrant forests, fields flourishing with yellow.
You jumped for the brightest sun
Up in the morning to watch the day dawning.
Thinking, we might find ourselves on the veranda again.
Sipping on Sundays.
Shining like a bluebell amongst the greenest grass.
Your eager longing led the path
We stared at the stars
Full summer, came to pass.
Your red lit neon signs for the delay
But you hunched it, zeal.
This was serious.
Oh yes! You say.
This is the best ever.
Imagine we could measure the sky?
Dip sticks in the earth to reach the bottom.
Dislodge gems and form ice blocks
Watch sparks vein through your being
Come to realise through the glowing dark.
That you had it.
You had her heart.
But you gave it away.
U hold the mountain in your palm
As you face the day.
You squat on the rusty railing.
In full perfection, swing from the light
Of summer, the best you ever had.
