I am the First Eve.

Life Everlasting

Shooting stars, staggering
over the broken glass of sky.
The thought keeps you awake
to suffer like cliches
about lost love, space,
and hand grenades.
You punctuate every
confession I make
with silence.
Please understand
I want a love like fire,
an explosion.
Vast and timeless like
the flames of
every constellation,
beautiful even after
Death.
