Learning to Ride Saltwater Tides
Isabelle5

You float on my thoughts
 1
like blueberries in a bowl
 2
of white crème;
 3
a little sweet,
 4
a little froth,
 5
many shades of blue.
 6
 
 
I try to float with you
 7
but I sink every time
 8
I remember the way
 9
your eyes locked on mine
 10
when you said, “This is not
 11
a fairy tale and you
 12
are not a child.”
 13
 
 
I watch the current of time
 14
sweeping you away,
 15
day by lonely day,
 16
wishing I had learned to swim
 17
as well as I have learned to weep.
 18
