The Appointment

Liquid crystal, surrounding a grain of dust
whose life, was this drop in my eye?
that fell from the sky?
that is destined to die, anyway.

The space I inhabit, is the absence of you
physical beauty creates this desire
I am wood in your fire
like a bird on the wire, flown away

At times it feels formal, just to kiss my own pain
to keep an appointment, to weep privately
so that no-one should see
no, not even me - I'm okay

Liquid crystal, surrounding a grain of dust
whose love, was this drop in my eye?
that I didn't cry?
or need I know why - I can't say

The laughter of lovers, on a blue frozen lake
a cold metal love, like a blade on the ice
in a fool's paradise
you can name any price - I won't pay
