You

By ASHLEY YOUNG
Senior, Bunnell High School, Stratford

 

it’s the way you hold onto my arm

as if you’ll lose all sense of gravity

when your hands slip down to my

fingertips, laced with the waves of

longing for a love anew

 

it’s the songs on the cassette that

make me dance and sing along to

the rhythm of our hearts swinging

into the dawn of another life

wishing for an infinite you

 

it’s the soft breeze against the red

in your cheeks among the starry

violet orchard in a sea of yellows

and greens, our spectrums

creating their own hue

 

it’s the thought of desire caught

into an everlasting moment of the

earth’s fall into another universe,

you’re the one it’s crashing into

it’s all that you do
