Cotton candy

I feel like I swallowed a cloud.
it's dense and heavy
just like Cotton Candy 
it spreads, wide and vast, 
it's sweetness too light 
so light it tastes salty,
melting into nothingness,

clumping, 
and choking, 

Taking a deep breath in feels like 
swallowing another cloud that 
never stops forcing its way up
my 
  my th-throat 

I choke it back 
suddenly 

it's no longer dense 

there's no saltiness and it's almost like
I was at a fair.
Having cotton candy. 
my Smile spreads wide and across my face, 
eye shining, 
not like the twinkle of the sun, 
but like the puddle that reflects in the night.
