I must confess
The sour smell of your lies is intriguing
Tell me you'll never let me go
and I'll tell you stories of hopes and dreams that wrinkle towards the end
Include me in your starlight memories and I'll come drenched in kerosene
glistening in the autumnal fire
With every word I fall deeper into your gaze
Sorcery such as this
inane but final
Final as the truth emblazoned among the pale light of the pyre in your irises
But I will not go alone
One embrace from me and together the lines are blurred
Is this a daunting reality?
Or the succumbing of our essence being swallowed into the mouth of disease?
Together we'll bleed
And the best part...
...I can still taste you on my tongue
