$CLOUT Poetry - Never Let This Bubble Burst


A poem about two lives intertwining amidst the chaos.

alternate text

Your silhouette basked effortlessly under the sun
As we bathed within the day we met
The beach let us sit in stillness
Soaked through with that magical moment

The one where we didn’t know what to say
So we didn’t say anything
And watched the waves overlap
With our cold hands bundled together

Suddenly, my nerves blurted out too many words
And I thought that would scare you away
But you just thought it was cute
And moved closer to me, without hesitation

My bubble I’ve learned to fortify
Has already moved you in
You merged with ease
And were carried through whisps of peaceful breaths

My lifelong insecurities are learning to fear you
Because they finally feel competition
From the warm glow emanating from you
That could outrun any criminal

My lifted heart is unceasing
I can feel it nestled in my throat
Embracing words that had started gathering dust
And a life I never thought I’d own

I wouldn’t try to dream this
Because I’d have to wake up
And face the reality of a life
Without you in it

Now within a world of uncertainty
You remain constant
I don’t want this bubble to land and burst
So let’s just live together in the air.
