Poetry by Pasithea Chan : “Surreal Assurance”

Surreal Assurance

The moon paddles the sky
to shine in your eye.
The wind winks in periwinkles
to draw your smile, it tickles.
Shadow and light tiptoe and fight
for the right to touch you tonight.
Time bends to your sight like a rime
pearled around a tine from rain for a rein.

I wish I was the moon because I
would fall from the sky into your eye.
I wish I was the sky because I
would break the paddle, just to cuddle.
I wish I was the moon because I
would drown in your sea like the dawn you see.
I wish I was the sea because I
would pull you to me when I miss you.

You are my dawn, when I'm alone.
You are my own, in a world of stone.
And until my eyes shut down, for
the night, I write about you to feel alright.
For now, that's how I can show
You're mine and I'm yours, that's for sure.
