I walk down you
With my hands touching your cold sides
Water trickling through my fingers
I could walk barefooted down your
Long expanse
And breathe in your musty smell
For hours
Breathe in the smell of loneliness
Darkness
I will keep you company,
Read you poems
Sing
And you can be my enormous shoulder to cry upon
Then, when we wed
The chairs will be filled with shadows,
Sitting inside you
And I will wear a black veil,
A black dress, and the darkness will marry us
I will throw a dead flower to the rocks,
Watching as they scramble to catch it
We will lay under a dark sky,
Thinking dark thoughts,
In a dark world
