Our Love

 

love is wrapped up

in tears that can’t stop falling

or the heart which falls apart

broken & breaking

so that it can learn about itself

by putting the pieces back together

 

& the voice scratches

the ears as it moans

or softly whimpers

to keep it from screaming

& love really fucks with you

but that’s what we ask it to do

& there’s no going back

only hopping up

& waiting for the blood to dry

 

& then you look up

& there’s something there

besides this raw emotion

bleeding from me

 

& our love is holy

& our love is true

is deep

& is

to the heart of it

me & you

 

& our love outstands

my desperate tears

& our love outstands

your erection

& our love outstands

what all the other people say

& our love outstands

the time apart

& our love outstands

reason & passion & belief

 

so i guess there’s no use in my crying over it

i guess there’s no use in my crying over it

i guess there’s no use in my crying over it
