The high of a Smile

is cotton candy, and butterflies, and hearing the air whoosh in your ears when you run.


The high of a Kiss

is hot chocolate, and fizzy soda, and jumping on a trampoline.


The high of a Touch

is a hot bath, and the opening of a warm oven, and neon signs turning on.

The low of the Touch

is hard to handle.

The Uncertainty —

Is it just for my body? Is that all? Are you sure?

the Wanting —

The low of Pop-Boom-Sizzle-Bang-Kapow!

There is no uncertainty —

You were sure.

there is no wanting —

I am full.

there is no loneliness —

You and I are here forever.

After Pop-Boom-Sizzle-Bang-Kapow!

there is only . . .
