Social

Remember our days of young my love
Where the web we knew shot from a red glove
What happened to us would soon become
A joy to many, a bane to some

Who measured you in stars and likes
Who swapped feeds with rides on bikes
If only you could tweet your fears away
Have a widget drive you through your day

Will you walk beside or should I follow
Login to your world of virtual hollow
Surf past comments and personality tests
Wade through oceans of friend requests

Does that post on my wall say you care
Or am I worth the links I share
I've waited long for the phone to ring
Often settling for an abbreviated ping

What brought you close drove us farther still
I'll edit my profile, can't change your will
You might wonder how this came to be
Truth is, a click can never set you free

Smoke

Alone you stood in a shroud of white
Alone you lay with heaven inside
To my aching soul you seemed a pill
You were a fire to my drowning will

I held you up and lit you slow
I kissed you gently my flake of snow
I drew you in and blew you out
Like a wave of silk you waltzed about

I smiled and spun not knowing why
Yours was a lust I couldn't deny
I held you close and harder still
Our breaths collided on that window sill

I smelt you once, inhaled you twice
Every inch of you was sweet surprise
I watched in awe as you smaller grew
I wished you'd stay but there were more of you

My lips stung sore by your dying flame
I stubbed your love without a shadow of shame
And in your pain you smiled, you knew
A part of me just died with you
