Elastic

Elastic dreams, Gathering in my mind Like full, inevitable clouds Raining down my cheeks with such promise Then settling down until the next day When the water rises again. Elastic love, So smart on my lips Tingling with excitement Pulling me to a wild grin Then snapping back again, In a way that is always a little painful But these days a little more hopeful, Than they have been in awhile. Elastic memories, These are the sharpest of them all. Unpredictable rule on my eyes, Played on repeat, Against the tender parts Of my pleading eyelids Then disappearing like precious vanities. I have never learned if I should hold on To that dissipating mist. Elastic young woman, And she Is the most resilient of them all.
