kotoshi saigo no yuki no hi (taking you down with me)

there is a clock that has started

its slow sighs sign the canvas

hanging in her heart

winding wild ribbons

around the worlds they used to frolic in

before the distance gave them away

before the deep colours of sunset stopped rising

before the cracked mast of their final shipwrecked moments

there was a time you reminded me of summer

and the heavy air of the city we lived in

as black butterflies descended

in slow spirals from buildings

even blacker still

as heralds of the lunatic night myth

she saw his face again

in the still waters at her feet

perfect again

for just a moment

and then in resentment the soft snow falling

is lost in dark water cold waves crashing

where are you?
