Bittersweet

Bittersweet


It’s the aftertaste of nectar
Just a little hint of sour
Bitter,
Sweet
Left behind suffusing me
Every time it is
We meet

Despite the haunting realization
I try to smile, focus on
The satisfaction
The laughter
Feel the here,
The now, with you,
Instead of think
Of what comes after

I could spin a thousand lies
Each golden, gilded
With glee
And it hurts to say this out loud
Even to acknowledge the sound
I can do everything
Except
Make you fall in love
With me

None of us get everything we want in life. Some hopes, some dreams, some so far away..

Some so tantalizingly within our reach, but yet, so completely unattainable…

While we can find that we do have enough to live within peacefully, this heart, this frail, flawed, human heart, craves evermore, for that dream upon a cloud, so high up in the sky…

That said, find the courage to spread your wings and fly into the storm. You never know.. The right wind may catch you…

Storms and blessings,

Cookie ❤

    Beautiful writing, Cookie, wonderful use of words to paint the canvas with the colors of the words…, bittersweet emotion. Hope this is just writing, and not feelings. ~Hugs~
