"a memory from high school" by Sara

August 5, 2018

I wrote this poem based on "feelings revolving around crushes."

a memory from high school

but throughout the night, a lightning storm has taken place
and took me from the comfort of my own room,
safety inside with thoughts of you, under soft covers keeping me in place,
heat rushing red to my cheeks, blood-tinted masking tan skin.

you, rose out of the sea, waves upon waves,
the deep blue in your eyes,
turbulence when lightning hit your waters, 
but not as it hit my roof and changed my mind,
spark plugged the car, fireworks on the Fourth of July still haunt me.

we never will be, 
we never were, 
but nostalgic ghosts still walk among the living,

and i hear them and think of you.
