Supernal

It’s so hard to—
Carry on—
When it’s just us two

But, when you’re not around
I just fall apart
I’m lost until I’m found

Every time I see you,
Is like picking a scab
And you haven’t a clue

It’s so hard to—
Carry on—
When it’s not us two

In ignominy(1) I wont hide
I’d sooner brave the Icarian Sea
And swim against the tide

When grief inundates(2) your only hope
And desolation kills all your dreams
We’ll see how well you cope

It’s so hard to—
Carry on—
When you don’t love me too

Lying prostrate(3) on the ground
Thinking things profound
Wondering if I’ll be found

Will you survive,
The test of time,
Or be the victim of a knive?

It’s so hard to…
Carry on…
When you just love to see me rue…

1: Shame
2: floods
3: lying face-down
