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.

I Was There

My senior pic

1985 and I
celebrated in style
with themed parties
every weekend--
Hawaiian, roaring 20s,
even "generic," all the same
 
trips to the beach and Everclear.
The B-52s roaring from speakers
Rock Lobster and Planet Claire
(I was there)
 
falling deeper in despair,
a lovesick fool
whose lifeguard boyfriend
stole the very thing
I wanted to keep.

Prompt inspiration~

Final Trip

She flew
to the moon
and back
in one night,
the flight
a liberty--
consequences
unknown.
 
Chance
enhanced
white dust dreams,
 pink clouds--
nonchalance
the blush
before 
descent.
