melt: a poem

uk things that make me happy vivatramp blog


they drove through golden skies,
top down, pausing
by the roadside 
for breath. between
milky leather seats

they whispered sweet nothings:
of late nights and early mornings,
silence and sleep, 
forever summers and phosphene,

blissfully blind
as limb 
            by limb they intertwined,
and drowned beside 
one another.

'melt' is a poem that I wrote in 2014. It was part of a much wider project that I undertook during my creative writing undergraduate degree and was later published in the third issue of litmag Severine Lit which you can view online. If you liked this, why not read some more of my creative writing



  1. This is beautiful! ❤️

  2. I absolutely love this, especially the first verse! Reminds me so much of all the camping trips my partner and I took when we first met. :)


  3. Love it you should post more!
