summer aches and whines
when heavy blades press against its neck
it's foul; fair game

summer dies, decays, desecrates
suddenly, summer is seasonal;
less tangible than Hell had ever seemed

the curls in my hair
unwind without your touch;
they long for the aimless love

the thoughts in my mind
spin endlessly without you
as if every question worth asking
is answered by your voice

still reminds me
that some promises can be kept
and some guns will never be pointed at me

and we could be in love again
and I could love you
and I could be loved

as if I always were
