i held you tight against
my body, my arms
clutching you in
a desperate embrace

i wanted to dissolve within you

because I knew
the crumbling house within me
would not let this fairy tale

there is no gravity
and nothing will keep this
moment together

the ebb tide
outside flowed against
the beach
the moon went down
on a desolate shore

there are others more
beautiful to hold you
