Forgive me

I’ve never had to hide a smile as wide
As the one i glossed over when i saw you How crazy that I’ve never been so full of vibrant excitement
Never been met with the existence of someone like you,
something utterly beyond the buoyancy of my normal day to day
whirling away
– a warning sign –
A bubbly descent
from the airy tippy tops of foamy naivety to lovers lost in their own entanglements
toes curling in waves then set adrift in subvertical horizons
grey spanning from abyss to purgatory awash on shores unknown
it’s possibly my own odyssey my own unsolved destiny pulling me under wringing my neck cracking a joke on your behalf whiplashing me back into the black and white
– a burial at sea –
that is to hide a smile from you and
Your —-
