a foreign affair juxtaposed with a stateside
and domestically approved romantic fancy
is mysteriously attractive due to circumstances knowing
it will only be parlayed into a memory

spilling blood across the ring
while the one who stands for peace
is ridiculed and shamed.
Must hearts forever suffer
from ignorance and greed?
Can bombs heal our souls
or set our spirits free?

I love you so much that my heart stops beating when you're leaving
And I'm grieving and my heart starts bleeding

I spill not without reason.
Remove them, my dearest love.

where the grotesquely lonely
meet the grotesquely lonely
and they whisper,
just very softly,
Please be mine, Dearest Love.


This world, I am afraid, is designed for crashing bores.
