look how love grows
like weed it spreads
it sprouts in neglect
is contaminated with its whiff
cause love is the only song the universe will sing, you know.
and the story you tell me is that
god is your friend
you pour your god words on me like water
mine i store like pebbles in the mouth
i will forever fumble
and tender petals float along currents of a river
that slowly dissolve soundless stones.
i melt into life.
love is your world
death is your cloak
you bow in prayer, that is your style
i will climb onto your lap
and play party to these rhymes
i will sail on your word
i will drown for a while
i will hold your hand
so we can dance to his song, once more.
i may have known you a long time, you know.
