'I would promise you until always ends, but I want to live forever.'

cyanide poems
dripped off his thin lips.
wreathing water-ink.
something like saliva
and coughed-up calligraphy.

up-turned cheekbones:
a smile
dancing to the surface:
a parody of laughter--
pallid and festering.

'you're a stranger, so why should i care.'

albatross hands.
dragged out;
crashing again.

'you'll vanish today,'

fingers chilled
to sticks of flesh and bone.

'not for the first time, i hear--or the last.'

face floating:
a harsh white sky.

spume and spray
spread out
like a too-taunt sheet.

surrender reaching:
frozen
and
languid.
longing for dreams.
pulling me down.

shining and smooth:
like the last moments
of falling asleep.

'i want you to stay a stranger.'

Shy away.

Interesting. It is well-written but I don't understand the proper meaning. Some people are dangerous but attractive. We know that we may fall in love but we realise they would only do us damage. Better to be a stranger than be lost in bitter memories. An enjoyable read.
