I want the moment love ends
all alone in a room
bathed in artificial light
angry green and
mustard yellow
venous red
paint me a story
about finding the way
woven through the words
a stranger will say
ten years from now
make it blue but smooth like
forgiveness and fading chances
for the feeble still given to hope
our day gray for the
jaded and grieving waiting
for the world to decide
what they'll be
soldiers like us in the war
at the edge of all things
I want the color it will be
the day I tell you
what's twelve hours for a kiss
burning out the eye
in a melted candle sky
a dying sun
