Let’s be away
from my dreams of you
unrequited and forlorn.
From society’s face that sees
we are leaving when
it’s you and I.
Where would we go?
kiss the bliss of sun.
Where incomplete fantasies
Stay in my corner.
I’ll stay in yours.
I love you.
You must be aware by now.
Come over here
where i can see you, your delicacies.
You mumble a sound like no.
A sound like my sick-bed aunt’s death words.
I hear, care, though fractionally and without clout.
But now I put my hands up.
Rob me. Take what I would give forever.
Put your hands in my pockets.
On my belt, around my neck.
Let’s be away from
our keyless house of my mirrors,
its impossible deed, and
threshold you will never carry me over.
Away from breathing the truth,
under this star-falling sky.
You and I.
We will look, through cracked sepia prisms,
at a future that won’t be ours,
bathed in rainbows already passed.
We could be so far gone,
that blood hound searches
wouldn’t capture our cool souls.
You fathom, my love?
Walk from me like dancing in heaven.
Dance with me, on the dying earth.
Just say it once, that you’re in love
with some small part of me.
What else could make breathing
necessary but you
uttering words I need to hear.
You swim deceptive shores, stroke
with the pendulum of waves.
You’re in, you’re out.
Go in one direction or another, down or up
You might suddenly leave for the stratosphere.
reaching for the hand of a new messiah.
A new love who confirms my calamities.
I live in your country, your truth.
You won’t come back, renew citizenship,
I know this.
But we could be away, just once.
you could lie
by being beautiful and untarnished for me,
by using words like handsome and yes.
I would accept your lies
Just for the one time
