there are rooms
in this house filled with
nothing but the black weight
of your past

there are windows pushed
to the point of breaking

and being in love is
being on the wrong side of
a locked door and i
find myself too often forgetting
where i’ve left the sun

i find myself
numbered among the dead
and dying species while
further down some long unused hallway
you cry for the person i’ve
made you become

and we will find each other in
the last fragile seconds
before the sky splits open
and we will stop

our hands will
explore living flesh beneath the
first low mutters of thunder and
our tongues will follow

that we believe this much in
the force of desire
should never be forgotten
