Ripping Years Away

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #446

Words:  sing, lift, rip, old, smooth, blessings, floor, view, enough, panic, virus, twenty

Sing and dance with me
on this old wood floor
the way you did when we
were twenty. Lift me high
in the air with smooth,
flowing moves. Bless this
view of us with years ripped
away, until we are young
enough to live in a different
world. You entered my heart
as a virus that still sweeps
throughout my body. I never
want to return to a world
where panic rules, and fists
are iron.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I love that scene: wooden floor, dancing and being lifted in the air. So nice.
