When our paths became entwined,

This world had torn you apart.

I was your healer - your victim.


We fed off each other like vampires:

Descending into deep dependency;

Becoming mirrors of corrupt beauty.


 For a few moments

Our love had no need for words:

The waves of our hearts broke


In perfect synchronisation;

The soft tides of our breathing

Rose and fell as one.


But in this cold clockwork world,

Every flower wilts and dies;

Every mirror shatters.


Wordless goodbyes are always

The most painful.
