What Is Left of Us

Dearly Beloved,, we have gathered here today

To wakekeep a love which should have died

But keeps breathing, hurting, wasting away lives

Aseye and Larbi kept this hot stone they called love to their chests

Searing their hearts, nurturing it, growing it

till their skins were half-charred

we will not know, who made who half-dead so they can look alike

they sit in pain, they will not separate

they stand damaged together, ignoring that being apart will make them better

These addicts,, these roots

that choose burning flowers over loneliness

Even when this is all that is left of them

the old owners of the damaged fridge in the image above, the same friends of Aseye and Larbi.
