I've said before That should it take doomsday For me to finally meet you Then so be it.
Just less than a year later, The end began. Meet we did, And end my world did.
You gave me a new life And a new world In exchange for my old ones.
Amidst the dystopia this decade ushered in, Where, indeed, Beasts spoke as learned men, Deceiving millions, The tyranny of the few was being celebrated By the gullible vocal, And a new plague festered in the horizon,
I experienced renewal, Shedding my old self in daily increments, While the world burned And the sky rained ash.
Heresies burned on the lips of boys While your name burned on mine; Stars died out in clusters every new moon As I was divested of my layers.
With every kiss, every meal, Every word spoken in love, You pave the way For my steps towards The Age To Come.
