I feel the inevitable veil of complacency settling in
The soft croon of my lover grows quieter and still
I am paper thin and nearly gone
As solitude surrounds my heart again
Perhaps that is all love is?
A fleeting series of mad heartbeats,
Deep longing sighs, searing lust, burning consumption,
Consummation and then…
We forget the dream
Forget the passion
Forget what it means to truly feast on life
And instead, simply fade away into complacency
I don’t want to fade.
