once upon a time

March 27, 2019


once upon a time
we were draped in velvet and silks
jewels studded our skin
gold fell from our lips
ichor ran through our viens

once upon a time
we were lost alone in space
we threw off our helmets
sang with no sound
we froze and burned and we danced

once upon a time
we laughed while it rained

diamonds and pearls from the sky
we fought the ocean as it crashed to shore
and we sank to atlantis again

once upon a time
we doused the walls in gasoline
lit matches and went up in flames
we sang and danced in the heart of the heat
we played hide and go seek in the smoke

once upon a time
we opened our coffins
climed out of our graves
and we cried and we loved
and we lived
