Before the end

The moon is waning and somewhere a star is collapsing into a black hole.
It’s so dark now. And so cold.
Life’s so fleeting. Our dreams caught in gossamer webs, in strings of time.
                  // Did you use to believe? To have hope?
Tell me, when did we lose it all? When did we finally compromise?
Tell me, do you love her like you love me?

& I think of all the futures that would-never-be (could-never-be).
Everything we create, everything we destroy.
// (all the remnants of us that we just let die)
Without you, I can’t dream. Everything is dull. And the tide is pulling me away.
Away from here, forever.

Will you love me before the end?
