Let say

let say,
I will love you like I never did
like the moon never loved the stars,
like the river never swallowed the streams
and the ocean never tasted the river.

let say,
you will call me by your name
like that was the death I chose
like that was where life took it spring
like you are all I will dissolve to
and that is all I can ever be.

let say,
you are dancing in the sun
the moon is stealing your debris
and the rain is washing your tears into an ocean
there, I met your mother in linen robes.

let say,
when night comes, you are an empty shell
and your mother failed to shine.
