The Literary Groong - 03/29/2013


	By Silva Zanoyan Merjanian

	She's in between poems you wrote in your sleep
	between madness and euphoria in your dreams

	she's between lips brushed on her breath's skin
	between fingerprints you kissed on your sheets

	she's between moans of the night and sunrise
	between notes of Beethoven rolling down your tongue

	she's between tuned strings of a cellist
	on canvas in between shades of sunflowers and iris

	she's laughter, snagged between your metronome beats
	she's in between an ocean and a sky on its knees

	you're between paper and a drop of ink

	Silva Zanoyan Merjanian

	On days like this
	Light carries sultry swirls to her fingertips
	as if a summer night biting on a breeze
	spring raindrops plump with promise 
	hit heaving ground
	burst into half conceived laughter  
	reality gently peeled from a dream
	nail scratches  inside her skin
	she slides through tight ribs
	eyes on joie de vivre threading clouds

	on days like this
	whispers color lips in rose scented pink
	half truths or lies
	in a moment 
	she heals

	on days like this
	she'll wear her blue dress
	she'll leave the curls in her hair
	red toenails scratch inside your skin
	as you try to escape your daydreams

	she never looks back again
	crushed apple seeds under her heels
