Perfections toll eating acid like my empty shell of a heart
a heart still echoing the beat of one hand clapping
clapping for you for everything you've ever done
laying me out, next to you
under the earth
to a death worthy of this only Life.
We were dancing to everything
relentless as the waves that break and burn as the world turns
wearing me out, falling me down
tearing love itself apart.
Legacy of time leaning out to hold us,
these growing years
ticking down to this old moment
rolling over my naked soul
all I ever am
most finally okay with me.
