Post Holiday Blues

I am
a hopeless romantic
for the unattainable
tropical

Sun, slow, saline.

Cinnamon skin
taut by the searing
pleasure pain
that high noon feeling

I miss the trickle
of liquid salt
down the small
of my back

I remember…

That earned respite
of chilled ale
and plastic fan
on sandy cool tiles

Ah, to stroll slow
merely meander
happily lost
on a long island

So long ago.

So long ago,
yet this bitter sweet
sunburnt memory
has yet to peel

Fresh pinned hopes
on cheap flights
short holidays
long nights

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
