Today’s Short #Poem 154

Long ago, we dreamt, and no one
could touch us. We walked
through the park to sit by the river
and float out to sea.
The sun shone and we smiled
and felt so clean to be in a world
of love and we burnt so warmly.
Then, home to play and practice
our telepathy and get the street
dogs barking and how come
all these people keep turning up?
We’d talk and joke and laugh
so much we hurt for a week…
and we never really saw
how well we knew each other.
