falling, falling

the unromantic expression on your tongue
reflects the same expression my eyes
feel within a sunset set over,
within a sunset set over,
over again.

in that shadow of a shadow we walk
until its dark enough not to tell:
feelings so far beneath us
as not to feel
the night
falling
on our skin.

love comes here to fade away
someplace between this heart and that–
the unwanted creation left
above or behind,
we cannot tell.

we: the hidden.
we: the pretend.
failing eclipse into a sunset set
over, set over,
again.
