It was the day you said I'd see you smile.
I said you'd be mine for aeons after -
You almost smiled.
But you wanted to warp my whims
So you smiled with your eyes.
I waited beneath the silent sky
And saw countless seconds whir wearily by
And the sun turned black then scarlet and wild -
I must have been destiny's ill-fated child.
The days grew thin and
Old; creepers haunted my nightless
Eyes. You remained in my dreams…
...And now I wait with bated zeal
For the apologies that my jaded humour
Will shred and hone.
My moonlit burns glimmer
With passionless fragments of memory:
I know this story now.
This time my scars will be forged -
I stopped dreaming of you two dreamless winters ago.
It was the day you waltzed my dreams away.
