always a romantic

a chill
at my small, bare shoulders.

the thought of you:
a distant image,
overflowing with toxic nostalgia --

it poisons the butterflies in my stomach
rekindling,
they fly into a frenzy.

you are a possibility.
unrealistic.
an idealistic dream driven
by childhood memories of yearning

for love .
