Touch-Me-Not, Come Back To Me

Stay for another year                                                                                                          

Let us live like kings                                                                                                            

In a brave future                                                                                                                        

In shades of pink and blue                                                                                                

Toss another salad                                                                                        

Watch the Daddy long legs climb the walls                                                                    

Love each other with gratitude  

 

Suck the lemon of our unfortunate harvest                                                                      

That bittersweet feeling of regret foaming                                                                                    

Eyes closed and we're kissing just to block out the pains                                                      

Another forest, another mosaic                                                                                            

Untangle me from the weeds, save me from my mistakes

 

Stay for another year                                                                                                        

Let us live like kids again                                                                                                    

And be wild in the night, full of wonder and sin                                                          

Tomorrow we will live up to our promises                                                              

Promises not to get mad and take our anger out on each other                                      

Promises to do better                                                                                                      

Kick our unhealthy habits                                                                                                  

Stray from the ways in which we mix colours                                                            

Fortitude as our new palette 

 

Barefooted on the grass, barefooted in lakes                                                              

When I feel anxious, when I feel like I'm alone                                                                  

I remember to breathe, I remember the times we shared                                                                

Fun days spilling into drunk nights                                                                                      

When I feel out of place                                                                                                    

I am alone, and that's okay, because I am my own best friend                       

Drinking my tears when I am sad                                             

Drinking my tears when I am sad.

    A great writing )) love the mention of colours and nature in this . And it’s important to be our own best friend .. we need to find some sense of comfort from ourselves , I guess

  • Rocky Lagou

    This is so neatly written dear poet! I'm enamored by this journey. It's so relatable too. As a loner I've been accustomed to being my own best friend. This poem also has a lingering sense of regret and recklessness that is lived when one is "young and dumb." I love this. My favorite lines are:

    "Let us live like kids again

    And be wild in the night, full of wonder and sin

    Tomorrow we will live up to our promises"
