In Our Madness

In your madness
What were you thinking
As we idled above the cliff
While you blistered your skin
With your cigarette
Threatening to take us
To heaven?

It must be love

In my madness
Blinded by what
I thought was real
Love shuttered me
In a false sense
Of security

In our madness
I stayed too long

You had me for
Another three years
Before I ran
Ran as fast
As my legs
Could take me
When I knew
It was safe

Did you think
I would stay forever?
