My Beloved

Drown you in my sorrows,
drool your name in my sleep.
Breathe your scent in like dust,
we’ll never keep this up.

Watch my bones crumble,
I’ll remain humble until my last breath.
I give and keep giving,
therefore, I have nothing left.
This eternal screaming in my head
is rendering my brain deaf.

My beloved,
we are nearing the end.
The past is our present
and the future is our home,
every part of my heart is turning to stone.

Take me to places I’ve never seen-
evergreen forests and bright skies.
May you never wander
farther than my eyes can see.
Take me to the river of blood, my beloved,
leave me empty in the flood,
everyone is dying to fall in love.

We stumble, trip and fall,
oh, my love, we’ve lost it all.
