how do you live
how do you live my lifelong love?
so happily, so intently
without a tint of old sorrows
without a tint of old sorrows shading your eyes
how is it that the world orbits around you
and angels follow you on all sides?
why is it that my world
why is it that my world is full of doom lurking in every corner
waiting for my soul to die?
why do I cycle through turmoil
with each fall taking more to revive?
yet you have never met
the deepest of the darkest shadows
no— you were born to be alive
