Do you like post-apocalyptic literature?
I like post-apocalyptic literature.
Here’s a post-apocalyptic poem for you:
It’s been ten years since the world caved in
Two months since I had to leave,
Three hours since my point of view shifted
But only now I see I can’t breathe.
I don’t understand,
I thought you hated me.
But since you’ve taken my hand
How friendly we seem to be!
My dear, I love you more than this shattered world
Even more than my warped and faded dreams
If only you’d say you love me too
My heart would simply burst at the seams.
I never hated you, my darling
I just didn’t know how to say
“I love you” in a way you wouldn’t scorn
Oh, come let me love your hardness away.
