Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver.


Dear Jane.

Dear Ben.

We were

We always were




fated to be.

together.


-



There is a coffee shop, Jane












I remember that coffee shop

named after us.

called The Last Kiss.

Remember?

I remember

That kiss in the rain

the coffee on your lips.

still lingers there.



-



But then...
There was a man.


-



We didn't see it

How were we to know

until he raised it to my face.

that he had a gun?


-



A f lash of red

His blood is still on the sidewalk.

and an eth erea l black ness .

The rain didn't wash it away.


-


I saw her

I saw him

As I rose.

As he fell.

She was cry ing.

He was smiling.


And Oh! the rain . . .

It still comes down.


-


It still comes down.





Sincerely,

just Jane


The author's comments:
Look, it's a poem about love. How original.

It's a choreopoem, which means it is made from two different voices that speak seperately but can be joined together to form a different message...

I don't think it's even an official poetry form. That's okay!

I also wish I could pick some of my own art to go with my writing but I'm not at all sure how to do that.
