Fast Love

I can picture it
like it was yesterday
but it never even happened,
the rush of love,
the speed of youth,
we would have had
a whirlwind romance.

Our beach wedding
with daisies
and bare feet
and your parents
helping us through.

It’s there,
so close,
but it never existed,
never will.

My fingers
keep reaching
for you
and that moment
when I could have stayed
and loved you on fire,
our burning
igniting the sky above
and bathing us
in fast love
and hasty choices.

it would have been
fast and
infinite and

Ok. So I read a few poems by other participants and decided to write a second NaPoWriMo poem. Enjoy!
