Let the Countdown Begin! {Poetry}

10.

In the crowds,
we all dance together,
but apart.

9.

We all love
like love should be
shared as freely as confetti and champagne on New Year’s Eve,

8.

loving is a cycle of energy
like water or oxygen
circling freely, and yet

7.

we all are shy—
some more than others—
still wanting,

6.

making wishes
on the future
like shooting stars

5.

that we’ll never catch
but we try
anew—every new year,

4.

cheering as the seconds
tick downwards
our pulse quickening,

3.

our eyes widening,
lips parting
to catch each other’s wishes

2.

before this second
of this second
disappears, and

1.

we kiss.
