Slow
this is how
the end appears
an epiphany
before a dream
after
hurt we dance

pray & break
apart in a
bed of dirt
head 
be-low cover
another
lost lover
afraid
of the dark
paralyzed
truth terrified
there to find
between the sheets
whenever we
speak behind
the lines shifting
with the sands
of time
heart
all is left
giving life
to memory
not knowing
who or what
how to where
the distance
too far
to travel back
again
only to
begin
is no more
is no more
is no more.

Love has become our new magic

For each other we all perform

We pray the next is different

We always find out it’s a trick

 

Yet, stupid with astonishment

Desperate to know the secret

& against all admonishment

We still beg for enlightenment

 

Whether we’re shown or being told

The secret is always revealed

& so it changes how we feel

That magic grows tired & old

 

In fact that trick now makes us sick

A spinning spiral so tragic

Nevermore, will it be the same

We only got ourselves to blame

 

Human hearts need to be deceived

It makes them beat & still believe

In miracles, through which they feed

Without stories, but tragedies
