By my side (55 word poem)

You with me,

A child
picking up pebbles,

hunting four leaf clovers,
running along primrose paths,
licking lemons sitting on doorsteps,

You with me,

A youth
in a restaurant full of people,

gazing into my eyes as I gazed back
at life aromatic with pain and strife,

Loneliness so faithful,

You’re always by my side......

(The 55-word poem idea is English-August's

Reminds me of Marcy Playground's first album. Do listen if you can get your hands on it.

You know what I love about this 55 word poem? Though you meet the 55 word criterion, you shape the verses with your own form.

"hunting four leaf clovers,
running along primrose paths,"

such flow doesn't come so easily!The restriction of words does seem to force you to come up with something unique!
