Carve

A year ago you taught me to carve pumpkins
and we laughed and kissed and fucked and loved
and made a mess of seeds and mush
until the moment you had to leave
love reigned then as I believed in what you said
A year ago you loved me and kissed sweet lips
and we loved and laughed and talked and fucked
under skies we made ourselves
until the moment you had to leave
belief reigned then as I hung on your words
A year ago we had belief and fire in our hearts
and passionate embrace seemed our fate
you believed in destiny then
and soaring words were our delight
joy was our meaning and enchantment
you laughed back then as we celebrated our love
you laughed back then as we held our life
you laughed back then as we did as we could
you laughed back then as we did as love should
This year I carve alone while my dog watches close
hoping I will drop pumpkin to the ground
and the laughter sounds like weeping
A year ago is not today and this bleakness grows
amidst the desolation of memory and solitude
A year ago you said we were forever meant to be
and I would give anything
for just one day of that eternity to come to pass
