Prophets’ dilemma

Photo by Tomas Anunziata on

We collided like shooting stars

Streaking across the whole universe

But our passion became our poison

Weaponizing everything in our hearts


Filled in doubt and wrought suspicion

All the scaring became the easiest part

We slowly ran away from one another

Afraid of who we weren’t- becoming


Looking to claim who we never were

And we pretended not to notice, much  

Until- we knew we were already gone

We turned our flames into a dark ice-age


Slipping past eternities edge of recovery

What have we done- to ourselves… to our love?
