Leaving My Love
I love you so much we must talk of death,
Dwelling on more than emotional expense.
Exhaust lengthy dark whilst I still have breath,
Sharing division on unravelled consequence.
Within sun-kissed youth, life’s eternal play
Made foolish provision for later years.
Thoughts of mortality were led astray
By blinding innocence and childish fears.
Together we must face more adult monsters,
As progress has left us and them exposed.
Knowledge is clouded with doubts it sponsors,
Unwelcome answers in beliefs once closed.
Days grow shorter and cold night blacks the view.
Sleep now my love, in dreams I will haunt you.
