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
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.
