Is loving someone with every fiber, molecule, atom, proton, and quark of your fragile existence,
With the prospect of still not being enough.
Empty cigarette packs fill our lungs,
And you can't seem to talk about the poison leaking from your breath, love.
I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
I would empty my soul of the dreams that have gathered in me,
I would beat with your heart as it beats, I would follow your soul as it leads.
"I can only describe the way you
lit up the darkness inside me
by telling you about the first time
Earth experienced a sunrise."

Life is for the livid
Live it without regrets
Don't let other people run it
They'll soon be out of breath
Pace yourself old sport
Your youngest years will be your best
Time is constant yet ever changing
Enjoy her spoils while you're still in her caress
For soon you will be nothing but a ball of wisdom and memories
With eyes which bear one simple plea
