Love is a song
That starts off at a slow and steady pace
And moves on and on
Gathering momentum
And speed
Until suddenly you’ve reached a beautiful tremor
Of heaven and light
Where everything is the embodiment
Of your happiness.

And then the music gets darker
And the voices get heavier
Until suddenly there’s screaming
And there’s drums that scare you
And there’s no one there to finish off the duet with you.

And then suddenly
