Let’s consume this deception

An obscene swallowtail butterfly dances and gasps for breath  Personification of pulchritude…
Why?  Why?  Are you looking into the distance?  Tears seem to spill…

The course of the pleasure that I indulged myself in, on the corner of the bed, open your mouth
I don’t want to accept that “My repeated foolishness was uncertainty”

This picture is too unsightly  It is worthless
Even if I hold you gently  It is worthless
Trampled wreckage, prone to disgraceful behavior, a clouded, disgraceful son with nowhere to go
Anger and sorrow… Repaying the kindness…

If it ends vividly, then we will always be in this beautiful state of being
My throat tightens from the loveliness, stronger
In your last moments, I want you to let one thing slip:  “I’m glad that we met” is enough for me
It’s beautiful like fireworks, hey, let’s bloom fully

I close my eyes and pause, breaths trail from my mouth
This spiraling love is malformed, a pomegranate smiles in death make-up

Last of happiness.

If it ends vividly, then we will always be in this beautiful state of being
My throat tightens from the loveliness, stronger
In your last moments, I want you to let one thing slip:  “I’m glad that we met” is enough for me
It’s beautiful like fireworks, hey, let’s bloom fully
