pine-shells and mud clumps, rivers and vines
I like you now and love you all of the time
silvering skies, blossoming eyes
the rivers that run through my heart seek a prize
i speak to the mountains, they chuckle and sigh
the treetops wave down at the seas with delight
feathers and roots, charred logs and sticks
my dear, i’m wholly in love with your rhetoric.
i feel pressure like an acid stone
curling wisps of fleshy smoke
as all my confidence degrades.
i do not know why certain folk
rob my self, make it choke
all i can say are words of aching breath.
they blink the light, my lungs go broke
my heart hates itself for all the love.
i do not know you, i can not love you
how could you betray me, my heart
how could you let the affection grow?
you persist! i want nothing more than to look beyond this one
let me move on
let me move along
i do not know him, i cannot love him
but Heart declares i should.
