Sister I want to play

Eff Lynch B

My Pockets filled with memories 

of you and me grooving to the sweetest of blues.

Nevermore than half awake

with a skip in our step,

And drool on our chins

We waited a while up there.

In the new loft conversions of our brains where we could play all day and life was lovely.


But then came the day,

When a needle began to tickle and tease

For your nose was too stuffed

Stomach too full.

Cuddled up next to bile and water

Linings sat before you upon a porcelain throne 

Those youthful indiscretions left sagging and gaunt

For they aged nothing like fine wine

Their light undertones gone

Only bitterness remains.


Whilst lost in the slur of our cerulean serendipity, 

we simply swayed along to the rhythm 

Now we really feel the blues.

So we lie down on earth for a while

We left our pockets unbuttoned, 

those little memories ran away from us into the grass.

Their shadows dancing briefly on our skin, 

eventually disappearing into the green. 

All that's left now is us. Wide awake.


How long have we been lying here? 

Please, sister, I want to play!

          "No person stands so tall as when they stoop to help a child." From the 1973 movie,Slither,although in the movie it's "man",but I thought it only appropriate to change it,but that's neither here,nor there. I understand this happened between mother and child,but I thought it to still be a great quote for this little gem you've penned so well RozinaπŸ˜ƒπŸŒΉ Bravo!🌹 Take a bow and shine bright🌟
