I drank tonight

A chalice full of old love,

Wine as dark as the nights

We wallowed in,

Words taking over kisses and caresses

Tender breaths taking over whispers,

Miles away, seas away

When the unspoken was only heard

By the signals in the universe,

And the love tried to seep through

Screens of white bright


I begged you

To never utter a word

That would end in an

Unfathomable depth of despair

For an eternity

And more.


And here we are

Years later, aeons ahead

Of our times and lives.

We shared yet another

Sigh of a wish,

And remembered Annabel Lee together.


My old friend, my very old friend


How would the earth spin?-

If we shared a poisoned kiss together

All night long!
