"Your eyes look better now," they say

Poets United gave the prompt of LOVE this week.  Ugh. 
I had to really reach deep for this one.  Thanks guys. 


Bubbles of life float through my veins
The edges become blurry and sharp all at once
 in a manicky rush of heat
Flying, flying, flying
I've been here in a dream.
Furry animals scurry up my feet.
Swinging on this end of the see saw
brings with it lime green heartbeats in every pore
And cotton candy brainwaves in every inch.
Up, Up, Up
I go
to the edge of the sky pyramid
and then decide to kiss the birds goodbye

                                        just for now.

For now
i will live with concrete veins
at the edge of a tarpit
watching bohemoths sink and struggle.
Today i will go against every instinct i have
and trust another creature

Is this love?

Love and trust definitely need each other, Templeton! I like that you've honestly spoken your own truth here...
