Until the End of the World

Havent seen you in quite a while
I was down the hold, just passing time
Last time we met was a low-lit room
We were as close together as bride and groom
We ate the food, we drank the wine
Everybody having a good time
Except you
You were talking about the end of the world

I took the money, I spiked your drink
You miss too much these days if you stop to think
You led me on with those innocent eyes
And you know I love the element of surprise
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You, you were acting like it was the end of the world

In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim
In waves of regret, waves of joy
I reached out for the one I tried to destroy
You, you said youd wait until the end of the world.

  1. Title and words are very fitting for this image albeit somewhat disturbing reading. At least the “tenants” have a great view in this location. Nice shot.

  2. For the first time in coming here I am speechless. I opened this and gasped. I felt like someone punched me in the chest. So many emotions slammed into me at once. I can’t yet sort them out. I could say more but I think it would be too personal here. So I will say, thank you for the rare way that you see the world. It must be amazing being you and walking through this world with your eyes open. I think I really understand that.
