Bye Bye Love

Hello, Loneliness
think I'm gonna say
bye bye
goodbye, my love
just like witches
at black masses
we lost our minds
then lost our jobs
we lived and died
across the wires
acted like we quit
but really got fired
downsized to zero
tubas blaring
vertebrae by vertebrae
dead, arms stuck out
sunburnt, cuffs frayed
birth degrees
granted and forsaken
our own animal
the same difference
our similarity
just how different we are 
trees of green
on plains serene
side by side
in the dark and wet
or blossoming light
born to live
afraid to die
dying to love
failing to fly
