Burn

January 31, 2009

Tonight, I need someone.
I want to be comforted, held
in conversation, told I’m fine.
I shiver.

My bones snap;
splinter.
For a moment I feel the warmth
of what might be an embrace,
feel myself burn as I am
consumed by this feeling.

Still, I shiver.
Soon, all will be charcoal grey.

Ark

Ark

Mast broken and sails ripped
beyond repair, I will take you by your left hand
and lead you in a melancholy waltz:
Forcing smiles through tired eyes as
We go down with our ship

Oh! It was a sad, sad, sad tale of
want and misery-
Stranded in the ocean, there was nothing to drink.
We didn’t let that stop us; we didn’t need food and
water! “My dear, we will simply
live off eachother’s regrets”.

Our ship, now fully submerged, groaned and creaked
with age.
“It’s just notes in the symphony”,
..and in the freezing water we
danced on.

Getting darker, getting colder,
we were gaining speed as our
wreck submitted
further to the
inky hopeless
depths

Exhausted, we drown, hand in hand,
hearts beating in 3/4 time
