Kiss Me Aqua

Picture prompt courtesy of The Mag 179

You parked the antique car
and kissed me, aqua
 
eyes lifted 
one deflated heart
to the heavens
where I danced
on moonbeams.
 
100 balloons,
a blissful high
long enough to trust again
 
until you confessed~
I was too far gone.

Lovely read, and I sense if only he offered one more time, to be kissed by aqua .... too far gone, would melt away.

Aw, those sweet, passionate highs! Never wanting them to end, never wanting those balloons to pop! Beautiful capture, Laurie!

That was me in the early 1980's. This was great and it broke my heart.

Hi, I enjoyed your poem too. The imagery is so beautiful. I too felt the free fall of a confession too late and what must be a broken heart to follow.
