Cities

The germs of you snuck in    
Through my skin  
They just came and came  
Not even caring about what
It would do to me.
They made a city in me.
Every street light was the  
Light in your eyes  
And the national anthem  
Was your laugh  
Every billboard was your smile  
The stars were the little  
Freckles on your nose and cheeks.
One day they decided  
To take a swim  
In my bloodstream  
I was having the time of my life  
Because you said  
"Forever".
Your germs caused a quake so great in my mouth,  
making me lose all teeth.  
I wish my heart lasted as long as it did.
 
I've decided to let go  
So I opened up my veins  
And all that came out  
Was you.
