Fly Away Lovers


We brood

       We love

We move

      We bluff

Our highs being ecstasy

Blissful, beautiful

Our lows being crucifying

Mournful, despondent

So I fly, fly away

Attempts to escape

An unyielding pain

You run, run back to me

Pleading to my sky

One more try

Star-crossed lovers

Non-stop lovers

Fly away lovers

We are

Fleeing love

         Seeking love

Bereaving love

         Seeming love

Inevitably fatal,

Always too close

Always too far


Never within reach
