If I wan, into the severed moonlight
Like the swarms of my shamed ancestors before me
Would you bury me, eulogize me
As I never deserved?
If we fade, beyond any recognition
Like the shattered mirrors revealing sullen faces
Would you forget me, resent me
As the ones who have done before you?
It seemed so new
Just like all of the stems blossoming around us as the spring began
It seemed so real
Like the warm breeze flowing between us,
Attempting to be yet another barrier
Everyone, everyone was watching
With their open mouths, gaping eyes, fish faces
Like they could ever even understand what we had
Or as if they were jealous.
