Foreverness.

Like children we bathed in the warmth of our foreverness,

Willing the world to wait.

 

I would sink into your songs and vanish

Into body temperature words.

 

Learning where all the pieces would go

We were building our bodies together for ‘one day’;

Zipping together our crystallising spines,

A pillar from which our love could decay.

 

Somewhere along the way, I forgot to remember you.

 

Silence is a voice

Often unheard

Sharper than words,

And it will push your promises until they break.

 

Watching where all the pieces fell

We were tearing our bodies apart for ‘one day’;

Crumbling between our fingers the crystallising spines,

A pillar from which our love died away.

 

Like the elderly we bathe in the cold of our foreverness,

Willing the world to move on.
