Cassandra Freiborg 10/10/10
In the purest depths I first saw you.
Starburst eyes alight
On a stranger and a crux in time
Oh and I loved you already.
Enthralling like a thrall that haunts me still.
Craving for a small taste.
The quickest poison; the strike of a viper.
The crushing weight of eternal bonds.
This terrible lottery I have paid into endlessly and endlessly and…
In the quickest despair I indulged
Drunk deeply of rapturous dreams
And withdrew too quickly the lips from the edge of
Spilling the last drops of golden dreams
And powerless to stop.
This useless passion obstructs all reason
And as your young heart did not languish
And now rests your heavy wings far, far from here.
I have learned to cherish this tomb
Of exhausted memories.
Lay these words at your feet and shed endless tears
For that purity in the first moment
That phantasmal kiss of death as you smiled
And said my name
