A Friendly Reminder

A Friendly Reminder

A Poem by Ally Monique

As a young child,
I was taught to fall in love
with the feeling of bare feet
on fresh cut grass,
and the taste
of soft serve ice cream
on chocolate stained lips.

Years pass,
and I am taught to fall in love
with the feeling of bare skin 
brushed up against mine,
and the taste
of white cherry vodka
coated with thoughts no longer mine. 

Falling in love is more than
putting faith in another antidote
it is,
finding happiness,
in the worlds most natural, and innocent things.

This poem really is on the top that I have read lately. It is so true and i connected with what you were saying. I thought of how we always are thought something, but it changes as time grows older. Thank you for your inspiration to think up a new writing of some sort! GOOD WORK!

I love the contrast from a child's perception, to now. Your verses are quite tender, and beautifully written!

Thanks again, for your kind words and positivity!
Very innocent piece.
Defined love nicely with the change of age.
Love your final words,
"Falling in love is more than
putting faith in another antidote
it is,
finding happiness,
in the worlds most natural, and innocent things."

I feel very honored by your lovely compliments.
Have a nice time with poems.
This is a delightful poem that uses creative comparisons to show how new endearments evolve from previous ones. I was inspired to write this tiny gift song-poem for you:

Loves

Objects of affection,
grapes upon the vine,
take a new direction,
turn to brandy wine

A wonderful piece of poetry! Strong with real world motifs, carrying a really good message.
Love is a glistening stone in the surf that is an adventure with every wave washing over it.

Great ink!
Thanks for sharing!
