Inferno


Remember that winter
that stretched to forever
and never seemed better behind.
But warrant as will
the cost of our thrill
was all we hoped never to find.
I loved you like fire
so quick to expire
extinguished by delicate fears.
And now to surprise
the peak of this night
I'll challenge your eyes to be clear.

I'll start with some words 
that crumble the earth
along which you've rebuilt yourself. 
Then mumble goodbye
while you hold back cries
to me to keep you out of hell. 
You'll hug me too tight
and smile in light
then scream from the pits of your bones. 
But I'll always hear
your most silent fears;
your inferno, a hell of my own.
