Ever Green, Ever Sun, Ever Moon

 

 

I blazed for you

Like the hot Sun

Every moment

I burnt for you

 

Smouldering

I went up in smoke

Simmering

Across the expanse

 

Consumed by You

I burnt bright

In your celebration

In your fantasy

 

And there

No one but

You

Can exist

 

And so love burns

Blazing

Bright

Hot

Till it mellows

Like the whiskey amber

Or chars out

Into nothingness

All the while

A celebration

Till it ends

 

And I

Then glide

Into the soothing darkness

Of the silken night

Already charred

And black

I wear the cover

Of your quiet…

 

The sliver

Of moonshine

My only sanity
