When Love Breaks Down

One night she told me not to worry, 

She said that swift winds, 

They would work to smother time, 

That a second thought was pointless. 

Yesterday as we lay entwined, 

She sought my lips and I almost shuddered, 

Drawn back by instinct, 

The sickness that I have contracted, 

It must have come from

All those loveless years before, 

But when she said those words again, 

I sank to the bottom, 

Pulled by the anchor and left to be smothered, 

In her intoxicating waters.
