Watermelon Pink

We were sitting  

On the sand 

Along the shoreline 


Our laughter 

Splashing into the silence 

Of the night 


I could feel the heat flush 

Onto my cheeks 

Watermelon pink 


As I looked at you 

And felt fireworks 

In my chest 


I knew you did too 

Because your cheeks  

Were toadstool red
