"Carnival lights flash behind closed eyes

Colors bouncing off a paper-thin moon

One arm draped around my waist

A lovingly simple gesture while we

Spin

Like there's no tomorrow.

A diamond sky greets my now open eyes

Sparkling on my many silver rings

Parted lips await his kiss

An anxious move as sweet as it can

Be

Like when he says my name.

'Love is such a stupid thing.'

But he laughs because he doesn't believe it

A certain smile to his tone

Another moment that I lock away

Tightly

To pull it from my heart on a rainy day

Snapshots for when his arms will be

Miles

From mine;

They'll help me through it, I just know it."
