My Love for you is Burnin (2010)


My love for you is burnin
Like Paris is burnin
New York burnin
New hope burnin
Flowers are burnin
Life is burnin
Existence burnin
The moon, the sun,
The universe, eternity,
Moisture from dewdrops on
Leaves of grass,
Dust floating through space
Everything is burnin,
Music is burnin
The dance floor burns,
Elation is burnin
Smiles are on fire,
Spirits burn,
Faith is burnin,
History burned,
Time is burnin
Death is burnin
Country is burnin,
Flags are burnin
Pride and ego and
Consciousness and knowledge
And body and soul is burnin
And race and gender and
Words and language
all human constructs
like religion have burnt
Sex is burnin
Orgasms are burnin
Nature is burnin
Civilization burns
Technology and progress
Are all on fire
Everything is burnin
But you.

For my Son Dio.
