Death Ain't Sex

from Tilt by Brett Ryan Stewart



slow as she comes

she doesn’t feel the same no more

she’s like a stranger at my door

it’s gone won’t return

the well has dried despite the flood

all that’s left is caked in mud… below

the depths of which the light will barely show (glow)

lines in the dirt

now determine hers and mine

make it quick we’re out of time

it’s blood on the walls

we scrub to clean the surface stains

but still the cracks are filled and look like veins

this place wasn’t built to keep us safe

run, but don’t run away

there’s something that I’ve wanted to say

death ain’t sex, death is love…

slow as she goes

she doesn’t feel the pain no more

like a soldier numb to war

it’s gone and won’t return

I try to make the hurt imbue

but all my jagged words cannot cut through

so here i stand with nothing but the truth

ringin’ in my head.

death ain’t sex, death is love…
