What do you have for me?
Weary, soul’ish side to breathe,
of flesh and bone, I cannot say –
I withered in your arms,
long ago away from pain;
a treasured spot left in memories.

I did not wish to pluck it out,
the memory framed in silver –
my head lay heavy upon your chest;
tears dried on the soles of your shoe,
they walked each day,
ever’ a night with you;
still they sit on the bottom –
of your soul 
stampeding upon my flesh and bone.

What do you have for me?
Anguished, ethereal love,
no more lungs, or tears,
or heart; of shallow stone I am made,
a crumbling sight of ever’ was,
a sick delight to otherwise,
a tasty treat of nevermore.

The delicacy of ravens’ beaks
scar tissue on the craters of the Moon,
a skeleton that leaps in the Sun’s spot –
I am burned-melted-crumbled,
left with all you would have of me;
a delicate bud waiting to bloom.
