Pocket keys,

leave ride behind.

Pull in—magnet close,

fingers entwine…

Spilled love

soft kisses

soaked sidewalk,

shadowed with hugs.

Light flashes: walk

we run…

Dancing under amber lights,

vacant street of freedom.

Stroll the pier,

end at shore.

Reminisce here,

year after year.

    As a literal thinker, poetry has always come hard for me but this piece is masterful and breathtaking in its simplicity (meant sincerely as a compliment, again, I’m out of my depth here). Well done, kudos!
