shark fins


Holding hands

Is what people in dreams do

Dancing stars

Fall between me before you

And we lose ourselves

Shopping malls

Look better in outer space

Waterfalls

Wash the freckles from your face

And we lose ourselves

Will I find you

Will I find you

When I wake up
Roller skates

Are more fun on the sidewalk

Rainbows scraped

On the driveway in orange chalk

And we close our eyes

Lemonade

Fills a glass in a diner

Running late

Life has never looked finer

And we close our eyes
Will I find you

Will I find you

When I wake up
Children play

In the dirt on the playground

Dinner bells

Make obtrusive alert sounds

And you see my face

Picture frames

Made of pasta and sequins

Swimming pools

Full of hands making shark fins

And you see my face
You have found me

You have found me

And I wake up

  1. Thanks, all!! I really enjoyed this one. I am thinking about finding a contest or two to submit it to. It also feels like a song to me, so I am thinking of seeing where i could go with that idea. Either way, it’s a fun one. Thanks for all the support- Keep it up! (It means a LOT!)
    Best!
