Overambitious Love

A collaboration with Benjamin Grossman https://benjamin-grossman.com

Her emerald beauty circled his upright being
She stretched her sublime allure to capture the snow
He felt the weight in totality
It exceeded what he could possibly endure

Most days there was a smokey haze between them
And this fog formed uneven walls
With tiny openings just wide enough
To let toxic fumes leak through

In desperation,
she let out her slow poison
He turned himself inside out to survive
But was never the same man as before
Nor she the same woman

They had interwoven
like a tree wrapped in vines
They wanted to thrive under any conditions
Thatโ€™s what all lovers long to do
Tragically they couldnโ€™t harness the moonlight
Nor grow within the embers of dying flames
