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.
