A Sort-Of Love Poem

February 10, 2009
There is no place safer
than you.
When the world ends, baby --
when nuclear war breaks out,
when all the volcanoes explode at once --
I want to be right there
with you,
Pompeii lovers in a world raining
never-ending ash.
It would be better to die
king and queen of the forest
than live to see the last tree
burned to the ground.

This was really good. I've read alot like this, but yours is touching, almost hard to not want to read over. It's true what some say about love. Draws you in.
