Yours



Do not condemn me, 
For being in love, 
I have lingered beside you, 
Till my bones rot in the tearful snow, 
I have stroked you in the moonlight, 
Glared at you in the sunlight, 
You, 
My love, 
Are my every conversation, 
When the world fades, 
And the busy disappear, 
We will be alone, 
Together and pointless, 
Beyond the stars 
We will exist; 
Amongst the silence, 
Of it all; 
Do not condemn me; 
For falling in love; 
I have seen the concrete path 
Of confetti, 
The silhouette of a wedding dress, 
And the smoke 
Of a receding car; 
I have seen children; 
Crying you to sleep; 
I have seen walks in the park 
Of a crisp dry autumn; 
Let me hold your hand 
In this passing time; 
Moments are far gone 
To cry now, 
But a broken heart weeps 
Like a hungry dog, 
I have lit a candle 
For your every dream, 
And lay you down 
Beyond my loneliness, 
I have emptied the 
Bodies, 
In your Paradise, 
Simply because 
I am yours.
