Mindless intoxicated
hours and miles
beat for beat
two sweaty bodies
aching yearning hearts
become one

The fire in ice
kept your blood
burning hot
but created dreams
far too scary
for one night’s rest

I watched you suffer,
drawing me into
the trickling poison
that became your soul
blinded to truth
revived in lies

I felt me suffer,
hoping to believe
your ghosts were real,
and danced with your demons
until they became mine
adding to my menagerie

Your flight in panic
left me with wonder
swimming in regret
endless questions to plague
a mind already tortured
and heart again broken
