"I Love You"

I stood there
On the searing floor
While quickly, all around me
Gathered smoke and desperate screams

I stood there
Trying to reach my loves
But found no precious answer
In the, suddenly merciless, cyber streams

I stood there
With dark visions of hell
And the vague and hazy pictures
Of so many lost and broken dreams

I stood there
Watching frightened people jump
As the heartless flames drove them out
Through black holes, to blue summer seams

I stood there
Reeling and thinking, sadly
Of good lives and soft loves gone by
And how painfully brief the time now seems

I stood there
Wrestling with the choking fear
And sternly denied the undeniable evidence
Confirming the ending of all my plans and themes

I stood there
As the melting floor gave way
And I swiftly and silently dropped
Into the end of all my best-laid schemes

I stood there and fell
With one last shining thought
That harbored all of my final feelings
About the nature of life and what it all really means

"I love you"
