A poem of love and death.

The demise of us

Do not wait for me

Do not wait for me - love

My heart yearns for meadows

My heart yearns for meadows - sweet

My heart yearns for meadows - sweet With wild daisies

I cannot sell myself to you

I cannot sell myself to you My body cannot be claimed by indecency -

I cannot sell myself to you My body cannot be claimed by indecency - For it would grow dumb and foolish

I cannot sell myself to you My body cannot be claimed by indecency - For it would grow dumb and foolish It's golden soul overtaken with granite mold

My head would lie -

My head would lie - forgotten

My head would lie - forgotten In unpolished splendor

My heart would stutter

My heart would stutter With lips bound by unwanted flutters

My hands would falter

My hands would falter Too soon for them to die

My hands would falter Too soon for them to die Their fingertips

My hands would falter Too soon for them to die Their fingertips - harden

My hands would falter Too soon for them to die Their fingertips - harden With useless age

You loved me in white

You loved me in white But white cannot hold such bold colour

Lost

Lost - Found -

Lost - Found - in an alabaster city

Lost - Found - in an alabaster city The occupants spoke before

Lost - Found - in an alabaster city The occupants spoke before But now stay in frozen states

Lost - Found - in an alabaster city The occupants spoke before But now stay in frozen states Their lips worn clean away

Lost - Found - in an alabaster city The occupants spoke before But now stay in frozen states Their lips worn clean away With futile love -

Their burden -

Their burden - I too possess

I find their silence

I find their silence The simplest remedy

So -

With these gray souls

With these gray souls I stay.

Thank you for reading.
