Tonight

and tonight, I couldn’t have been any happier to have known you.

Because tonight, you have exhibited in all your splendor

what it means (to me) to be alive.

But now you, you will no longer have that chance–

to be happy to have known anyone–

because you,

You are breathless, timeless, hopeless.

and you are gone.

His Eyes, Her Eyes

If I tell you nothing else, I want you to know this: I will love you until tomorrow. The sweetest words a stranger could say, she thought, as they fell into bed– fell into love. Tomorrow never comes. The love that comes in fairy tales and is awoken by a kiss. She, too, would surely be awoken by a kiss tomorrow morning. The sun shinning in behind him, a perfect smile to awaken to. She has seen it at least a million times in music videos, commercials, and movies. Now she too, will spend her life happy.

If I tell you nothing else, I want you to know this: I will love you until tomorrow. Tomorrow isn’t that far away, he thought, since it wasn’t even midnight yet. And they fell into bed– fell into lust. I can wake up tomorrow and be home before breakfast. That is, if I can make it out before she wakes up. I bet I can even be quiet if I wake up still drunk. He has seen it at least a million times in movies, and a million more times in life. And now he too, will spend his life happy.
