Immortal Peril

How I wish I could go back to a time

When I was yours

And you were mine

 

To have nights of soft conversation

To speak our truths

Without hesitation

 

How I wish in this deep abyss

Of existence

I may remember your kiss

 

It has been centuries

Of clinging to moments

Tactile in memories

 

I have taken lovers since you

Lacklustre blurs

Weary at the thought you knew

 

I really thought you were replaceable

It was a big world

Now it is small and predictable

 

No, you have adamantly stood

Like a thousand year old tree

Your reaching further than you ever could

 

Am I to be cursed with you forever?

Is there more to me

Than my incomplete future?

 

To grow old, feeble, diseased

Looking back with you

Tired but pleased

 

Something that I will never know

Oh my dear

I can never let you go
