Beautiful People

by Ashley Tong 3 years ago in surreal poetry
Report Story

And It Dawned on Me, Quite Right

We quietly departed from twilight

gazing at the stars overshooting the sky

with ease with space but unalike

it was all recast with daylight

And it dawned on me, quite right

that I was latching onto the opposite ride

spinning around the edge of my sight

bewitchingly caught in the riptide

subsumed with warmth was the amber

treading on the heels of the solitaire

and between my lips was a luscious ember

that has never tasted better

sinking deep below the surface ripple

making sense even as they mumble

There, there I saw the beaming twinkle

and my beautiful beautiful people

surreal poetry

About the author

Ashley Tong

If I were a painter, linguistics would be my palette, and poetry my favourite brush. If I were an artist, nature would be my muse, and music my companion, and I shall endeavour to depict life as I see it.
