Heartbeat MAG

March 2, 2010

When we all sat under the sky
darkening with spilled
tar

When we were laughing like
drunks and really, on that
blanket on the grass that night,
really we were drunk, on
Pepsi and Ring Pops and cheese
curls

When you kept looking over and
our eyes collided like satellites and
I was cold, it was getting
cold

When I stood and my feet,
they slapped against my flip-flops and
kicked up parking lot gravel, I was
jangling my car keys, I needed a
hoodie

When I could hear them all in the
distance, quiet and then bursts like
fireworks of laughter, and I turned and you
were right there next to me
unsure

When you so gently like cotton
pulled me in and kissed me, that’s

When my heart
beat.

I love the way you descibe the whole scene, I feel like I was right there with you. I know that sounds corny, but oh well. Seriously though, that was really good, keep it up!
