Silver Chains, Missing You Again

After all

we are just lovers

slipping silver chains

underneath down pillows

and walking you

back through the door

our tongues crave more

our hearts say today

but our minds say tomorrow

at least mine does

because no matter how much I discover

about you

no matter how many rivulets

the oil makes around your curves

I still can’t have you

because you’re not mine

not yet

the snow offers a blanket

around this heart and throne

a fire amongst the heartiest snow

offers a glimpse into the shadow of our eyes

all we need is time

not another lie

not another fabrication

that spins a rhyme on the lips

of the forgotten

breeding envy and rotten maggots

won’t you come inside

into this life of mine
