Koi No Yokan

– not quite love at first sight but the feeling you get when you meet someone and knowing it’s inevitable you will fall in love with them

the day we met
we lay on a blanket
of what ifs
each fallen Cherry blossom
a promise we made

your lips
like grapes
the sweetness lingers
every time we argue
it quashes the sour

petals turned white gold
around my finger
my left hand holding
the promises that came true

my skin will age
beneath the ring
lessons we learnt
etched in the fine lines
creeping from my knuckles

they will bury us together
skeletons entangled
the way our bodies were
