You Are Not Just the Love of My Life


You are not just the love of my life
(if only it were that simple)
You are the love of all my lives
And my eternal life

Ours is the love that points at death and laughs
Ours is the love that makes it hard to think clearly
From the opposite of intoxication

Even in this degraded state I would
Swear on every life I’ve known
That yours is the light that will cut through the fog
At the end
And after that
