Awaken

I blew bubbles, watching the colourful spheres float away.
When was the last time I felt so happy?
What was the last time I felt so happy?
Behind the serious face you hold a smile.
I blew bubbles into your face, giggling,
light-headed, blushing, smiling.
And you get up, taking the wand from me.
I watch you, as you blew them back,
your sweet breath now, I lack.
How long has it been, since I first fell in love?
In love with you, in love for you.
You broke forth with a smile too.
Falling, faster than ever.
You've gone through two girls while I've been here.
How long more will you burst my bubbles?
I've loved you, and you haven't known.
How long more will you hold my delicate dreams in your hands?
Those smooth, worn hands I long to hold.
How long more will you keep me lovesick?

  2. This is one of my all time favourites. I can't even begin to explain it. It's beautiful. I suppose I relate to it, and you've manage to put the feeling to words perfectly. Bubbles are awesome. *hugs* Brilliant, as all your poems are.
