Consuming Love


I didn’t fall in love with you,

Oh, how I wish it had all been true,

Instead, I jumped in the depths of the ocean

Not afraid of losing my oxygen.


Because my air belonged to you –

My soul, and my love, they did too –

Besides, not even the dark

Could have kept us apart.


You were my light in obscure places,

My spark of hope in difficult tenses;

The moon and sun you were at times,

The pure inspiration materialized.


The loss of you shattered me,

It broke my soul and brought misery.

My muse now gone I can’t ignite,

Although being a matchstick is what I like.
