Community Stories. Get Inspired, Get Underlined

a blank blue pool bulges above my head;

holding everything.

relativity and time and past and these intimidating words with even more intimidating meanings 

and I remember when

summer was funner and dumber and sweeter 

and first kisses and dirty dishes and blue peter 

and overwhelming all was it.

chattering teeth and wiggling toes 

tummy turning and bodies froze

And you can’t leave this moment 

I can taste the times on my tongue when the tears fall

Because somehow you knew 

Even in the midst of the best

That the worst was still out there 

now my intestines churn and I am bound by the same goosebumps that freed me

my limbs quiver without such novelty

and I have transcended beyond those joyful times
