Sweet Disposition

Sweet Disposition

A Poem by QC

The sun beating down,

Soaking through your skin,

The warmth getting lost in your heart.

So happy you smile for days.


Time going by so fast

Your mind spins.

But that’s okay,

Because a moment like this lasts forever.


Short skirts and tank tops,

Shorts and shades,

Wild hair blowing in the breeze.


The ocean cheers in excitement,

Birds fly back north,

Sand between your toes never felt better.


Sitting outside just for the hell of it,

Watching clouds go by and letting your mind wander

To places otherwise left alone.


Lying in the grass and closing your eyes

Against the giant flaming star of our existence.

Now is the time to dream, and not be ridiculed.


That smile you share, just you and him.

They meet and whisper words so effortless, so amazing,

You’re convinced this’ll last forever.


The sky rains on your parade but you can’t help but stand there,

Face to the sky, clothes getting soaked.

You dance like no one is watching.


A moment, a love,

A dream allowed,

A kiss, a cry,

Our rights, our wrongs.


You smile and it never felt so right.


This is what life is made of.

Author's Note

A moment, a love, a dream allowed, a kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs. I don't own these words. The song is 'Sweet Disposition' by The Temper Trap.

Comment if you understand.

This is great, it made me happy to read.

theres this lyric i like, "this is how we live" (by the summer set). and this poem kinda made me think of that. both just have this feeling of youth and freedom and carelessness and happiness. idk. i like it.
