Sometimes You Can't Help But To Love Her...

We held hands on the last night on earth. Our mouths filled with dust, we kissed in he fields and under trees, screaming like dogs, bleeding dark into the leaves. It was empty on the edge of town but we knew everyone floated along the bottom of the river. So we walked through the waste where the road curved into the sea and the shattered seasons lay, and the bitter smell of burning was on you like a disease. In our cancer of passion you said, “Death is like a midnight runner.”

The sky had come crashing down like the news of an intimate suicide. We picked up the shards and formed them into shapes of stars that wore like an antique wedding dress. The echoes of the past broke the hearts of the unborn as the Ferris wheel silently slowed to a stop. The few insects skittered away in hopes of a better pastime. I kissed you at the apex of the maelstrom and asked if you would accompany me in a quick fall, but you made me realize that my ticket wasn’t good for two. I rode alone.

You said, “The cinders are falling like snow.” There is poetry in despair, and we sang with unrivaled beauty, bitter elegies of savagery and eloquence. Of blue and grey. Strange, we ran down desperate streets and carved our names in the flesh of the city. The sun has stagnated somewhere beyond the rim of the horizon and the darkness is mystery of curves and lines. Still, we lay under the emptiness and drifted slowly outward, and somewhere in the wilderness we found salvation scratched into the earth like a message.

I cannot leave here. I cannot stay. Forever haunted, more than afraid. Asphyxiate on words I would say. I’m drawn to a blackened sky, as I turn blue. There are no flowers, no not this time. There will be no angels gracing the lines, just the stark words I find. I’d show smile but I’m too weak. I’d share with you could I only speak, just how much this hurts me. I cannot stay here. I cannot leave. Just like all I loved, I’m make believe. Imagined heart, I disappear. Seems no one will appear here and make me real. I’d tell you how much this haunts me. Cuts through my day and sinks into my dreams. You don’t care that it haunts me. I’d share with you could I only speak, just how much this hurts me… just how much this hurts me… just how much you…
