there's a dimple on your cheek
a bead of water is trapped in it
playfully, my finger finds it,
but it is quick to pull back

hot lava erupts among the water
the harsh sizzle evaporating wetness
i touch your cheek in shock
but when i pull back
your skin is attached to my hand.

then bubblegum layers peel away
revealing
scorching flames and wisps of darkness 
and somewhere, miraculously, 
a river of salty water flows in between
the searing lands of misery.

my hand finds your cheek again
the flames are cruel, at first
but now, just an endearing warmth remains.

and i watch, as my magic touch 
extinguishes your pain.

    I feel like this is so simple yet... magical and beautiful in its own way.
