A Tide Of Love Chapter 5Chapter 5: Black & White Vision
"So, Sparkz," I said trying to make a topic.
"Yeah?" Sparkz said looking at me.
"What's up?" I asked.
"Not much," He said, "I'm just hyped about tommorrow. My first
adventure starts with you, and it tommorrow. I'm so excited!"
"Me to Sparkz," I said smiling at Sparkz.
He was looking at me, by the look on his face, it looked like he
wanted to hug me.
I chucked, "Sparkz, if you wanna hug, you can just hug me, don't go
all looking desparate and all, you look cute already."
"I wasn't really asking for a hug," Sparkz said, "I just like looking
cute, and I like looking at you."
"Really?" I said questiony, "You don't wanna hug me at all?"
"Oh I get it, you wanna hug me. I know you do." Sparkz said rubbung my
"What!? No!" I said blushing.
I was freaking out, I stood in my spot shaking. Sparkz glanced at me
"Here, lemme ease your stress."
Sparkz hugged me.
"Thank you Sparkz," I said.
I nuzzled his chest, I haven't noticed this before,
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
Keep in Touch!
