Lost the Beat

Lost the Beat

We had it all once, babe,
a glorious moment in the sun.
We had it, loved naively,
but serenely blind we came undone

It slipped away so easily,
each of us felt carefree, still thinking
all was well between us:
Our hearts broke each other without blinking

Remembering our life now
it all feels ridiculous, absurd,
I guess our love was frail indeed,
we both let it go without a word.

If I could, I’d take it back,
but our shattered hearts are rightly wary.
My wretched soul fears more pain
and sees you as its adversary.

So we stay apart, my dear.
I won’t risk grief over you anew.
Reign nostalgia firmly in
and bid you decisively adieu.

Dangle

Let me hang
on your every word
your breath,
your gaze.

Let me droop
in these chains
in this life
in this dreadful
boring life.

Until you tie me up
tie me down
let me dangle
aquiver with
anticipation of
every
breath
every
blow
every
precious
speck
of pain.

And that is when
I live.
