upside down.

Her hair flowed like water in the wind,

Her eyes gazed as if she’d never seen before,

Their laughter rose above the rows of corn;

Staining the air with memories.


He looked at her as if she held the whole world in her hands,

While she looked at him as if he stopped the world from crumbling.

Together they travelled

Through endless planets and stars.


But she knew more than he

That the world that rested her palms

Couldn’t stay there forever.


She knew she couldn’t hold onto her planet for any longer;

Her arms were starting to ache,

And her head hurting.


She knew when she was alone;

Her thoughts swam with sharks

And more often than not ended in wounds.


She looked up at the sky,

It looked funny upside down;

She laughed.

But he was too busy caressing her body to notice.
