She started polishing my shoe but then told me that we weren’t going anywhere…YET
By the time she was finished – I had a pulsating shine.
I was ready to walk down the halls with my boot, you see?
I was ready to read.
The book was very exciting and I could tell line by line – how enthralled I was beginning to feel.
I started with the preface. It was a proper introduction as it briefed me on what I was about to witness.
I became even more earnest when realizing how inviting the chapters were.
I then began to turn the pages.
The crisp sound made me even more anxious to reach the climax.
I’m sure I won’t be putting this book down anytime soon.
We both started to levitate and by the end of the book – the closing chapter read as follows:
In love, we can levitate
Not just by the ascension of the sky
But also falling down with hope
That we may land on the grass but if not
Our splattering bodies can transform what is yet to be known
Our tissues, blood, nerves, and bones are evidence of
What we can’t see is that which keeps us alive
Maybe it’s better – if we lay together without falling
For a rest, we will remember when our dreams invite us to sleep
Just thinking of the destinations we can explore and how much fun we’ll have
Yet – Those places don’t compare to the journey found with you
Holding your hand is magic plush
I can think of nothing better than to be with you
Half of what I am must be spent with you
The other half of me is mining how I should repay you for blessing me
I’m never breathing this moment because I have so much more to give
It’s true – a token like this is rare and newly found
I’m giving it to you and in return, we can be as wealthy as ascending atoms
DEDICATED: To all of the book(s), I’ve had the pleasure to read. Thank you for allowing me to levitate in love. ❤
