The Moment Was Enough

The Moment Was Enough prose poem

Photo by troy_williams

We drowned ourselves in endless g&ts
The glorious bounty of Wednesday happy hour
Bathed in the light of hipster patio lighting
And the faint smell of last night’s campfire
So smoky I couldn’t feel your hand holding mine
Our intention blurry
Our vision too loud

We spoke of dreams and ambitions that our flirtation was decimated by
I was impressed by parts of you I glimpsed
But knew I would never touch
And that was fine
That was feeling enough for how long that mason jar would last

We ran into the night with our headlights out
I could hear the timer blaring as we fell back into ceaseless raucous laughter
The halogen twinkled behind us
And that was magic enough
I had learnt already that a glass of water
Was compassion and humility enough

But the drinks ran out
And our lives flashed into focus
A warm side hug, a forehead kiss
And our uncertainties were anchors we flung ourselves from
Away from each other, chipping away the best parts of the memory

Parched lips, hungry smiles, satiated curiosity
