Cotton Candy Skies

Soft and colorful clouds of fluff

Beneath your cotton candy skies

My dreams reflected in your eyes

Your touch promises ‘enough’

Should I reach out and grab a tuft,

Gently place it on your tongue?

The sweetness promises melodies unsung

But only to a heart not scuffed.

Our future dissolves,

Yet the grit remains.

That sickly sugar crunch…

Gone too soon, sticky with regret

Just lay back and watch the sky

Feelings of love we continue to deny

You shouldn’t taste just yet.

Don’t touch the cotton candy cloud

What is a relationship if disavowed?
