The fog has finally lifted

I no longer walk in a haze

But I must account for the direction

Of this maze as I step forward


Your drug arrived in opportune time

Fingers no longer curled around a broken pen

My hand was free for yours to hold

Heart letting go, it was ready to fall


So I crashed into you

Landing in the cushion of your heart

In the comfort of that warm embrace

My faith in connection ignited


But I could not rest forever

I needed to capture the red flags

Not settling with the uncertainty

Romance fell into place messy


We made our moves, served the ball

But it’s hard to catch paint balloons

The colors splattered on us and the court

Leaving us to decipher the colors spreading
