CARNIVAL

It’s a roller coaster ride
vertiginous
thrilling
exhilarating
the breeze on the cheeks
the fluttering butterflies in the tummy
the tingling feel of Eros’s arrows
he’s the one, you’re convinced
she’ the one, he’s certain
you talk for hours – and he actually listens
his eyes don’t stray
his fingers don’t thumb the keyboard
he remembers your favorite ice cream
your best friend’s name and other little details
his eyes crinkle when he laughs at your culinary faux pas
the chemical reaction is as sweet as an experiment gone right
 eureka!
in jammies or ratty house clothes
thick bags lodged around the eyes
hair puffy like cotton candy
thoughts roaming freely
he thinks you’re a goddess and more
que horror!
the ride slows down
and plunges into an abyss of lies, lies and lies
betrayal is rife
rending the flimsy shawl of trust
the ride is over
no, thank you, I’ll sit out the next one
