Happy Hour

When I was with you, I smiled.

By Rayn BPublished about a year ago 1 min read

It’s when my serotonin

Dances with dopamine,

And endorphins meet up with oxytocin

At their favorite bar for happy hour

That I think of you.


When the scent of fresh brewed coffee

Transports me back to the old diner

Where we shared booths and breakfasts...


How my laughter feels

Like the aftershocks

Of your jolting jokes,

Timed like earthquakes.



Does not spark the memories...

When I was with you,

I smiled.


So now,

When my mouth curls up

Like an upside down rainbow,

Your face returns.


But as I step towards you,

The rug pulls out from underneath

And my feet land in the quicksand

Hiding below...

But I do not struggle.


Let it take me slowly,

So I can stare into your eyes

And allow my gaze to linger

Until I am swallowed whole.
