"To Forget What the Sun Feels Like" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on April 11, 2014

"To Forget What the Sun Feels Like"


Painfully so

Catching feelings

It burns; better than being numb

Ready to feel you again

Eternally haunting, over our shoulder

Ripping off scabs; scars giving way to fresh flesh

Swimming in the sky

Measuring your light

Going down and up, back and forth, day in, day out

The big bling wrist watching us all

Doing the backstroke

Opening our eyes to the dawn

Dinosaurs knew you too

Till you took some time to chill

No sweat

Relaxing on the flip side

Awaiting your turn, your good graces

Shining down on our faces

Eyes shut at the site of your glory

Blinded by your light

Setting over and into a meadow filled with green, purple and yellow

Black trunks, embroidered with your gold

Fading and falling into the fold

Giving way to the stars

Your babies

Full of gas

Awaiting the roar of the lion

To be reminded

What it feels like to be the blessed ones

Baking and basting in our own juices

Pan drippings that taste like love
