When you run out of reasons
let me find you excuses;
I will caress your pericardium
to frictionless ease--
you cannot experience fatigue.

Where are you rushing to?

When you run out of excuses,
let me buy you some time some time.
We can revel in the unfair secrets
of a biased cosmos, attuned
to attack perfectly. You were always
a typhoon rumbling
in my chest--

my heart is humming all its pulses
just to sing along with yours;
this is the speech we comprehend.

When you run out of time,
let me breathe in your expulsion;
my loyalty will show you how too much
of the best things can kill you with joy
alone and when you are left inhaling
God's good soil, look up to me
and tell me you were never
going to leave me.

there is a moment's ease
between every day-long honesty
you give to me.

You are a dream waiting for morning
and tomorrow is my arch nemesis.

When you run out of breaths,
let me palm your eyes to slumber
let me believe it is over, for now
let me give you some more reasons
let me buy you some
let me give you one more excuse
to stay with me;

my heart is humming all
its pulses, just
to sing along
with yours.
