How beautiful we once were


How beautiful we once were

Her hands coddle
a cold stone

A gaze melts
a frosted heart

With her
I forget
I’m human

Is unsettling stillness
she sees all my sins

Razors exhale
And ribbons dance madly

A cool burning
falls from truth-bound lips

How awkward
We’ve become
As animals

Pulling the needle
From the cracked record

She confesses to me
“We’re all dreamed by dreamers”

In slow moving twilight
We dance
Like time on fire

How beautiful
we once were

In that moment
Never changing
