We will lay here To count each others wounds, Frozen of blood, Leaking of shame, Like the stars above us. You are the world I once knew, So let us start with a kiss To see how you grew. Your eyes, the color of the sun, With your eyelids, the covering of the universe When the light escapes All places to find view. I am in all places miserable, While nothing is to be seen Of where I originate On the holograms of time. Please let me kiss The two lips that breathe out from themselves, Parted, to release the ocean Down my barren throat, As I send myself shivering To the glaciers that free themselves From the mountains that raised them On shoulders, as cold as the snow. I would like freedom From my promise to you, Yet I am disallowed the kiss I requested, Only to see you rise, sky-high Away from my pain Where it only nests seeds in the dirt, So that I may never reach a height Beyond my grueling plight.
