Short Lived

I laughed today,
in impetuous fits of giggles
that clenches the belly
and ignites every sense
as though it were kindling
with a spark big enough
for my heart to catch aflame

I felt alive, pretty, like a wildflower bloomed
in the wasteland of my soul,
but then I thought of you
and immediately wilted

What a powerful rise & fall of the heart. A capture of a joyful, innocent moment...only for reality to strike. Damn. It's great to meet you, Melissa. Great job!
