I Knew You When Your Eyes Were Blue

[1]

Paul Albert Besnard, The First Morning, 1881.

341 words

Your heart rate dropped precipitously
Like the bottom of my mind at its apogee
The angels were clamoring for your wings
Despite what they say, they are terrible things
Immeasurable for the dread in me
But I love you unspeakably because

I knew you
When your eyes were blue
You were half me
And entirely
Beyond all my senses

The nurse acted fast, we signed the release
Sprung from the matrix our masterpiece
Though I could see the gore of it all
Triumph was spelling itself on the wall
They can make a sham of all my slender dignity
I will always know the love that slammed through me when

I knew you
When your eyes were blue.
You were half me
And entirely
Beyond all my senses

Secrets drag on indefatigably
We signed a blood pact against history
Could I have spared a single care for you
Stretched between the past and the future too?
Yes, that kind of pressure can break anyone
Inside your distant eyes, I know it’s begun since

I knew you
When your eyes were blue.
You were half me and entirely
Beyond all my senses

The years tick by like a second hand
Each promise that I made feels like a reprimand
I know the Truth is brilliant, that’s why I’m so blind
Will you stay true to yourself and your kind?
We’re running out of time, and it’s so hard to see
Won’t you come back and remember me because

I knew you
When your eyes were blue
You were half me
And entirely
Beyond all my senses
