The Last Time

she tells me Iím too high
then lays on my chest    
listening to my heart beat  
I say its ok, I'll be fine †  
††  
I suggest another line †  
as I kiss her neck and †
set up rails on my desk †  
she nods as clock chimes † †
† †
this will be the last time †  
I tell her, Iíll quit, I promise †  
she gets up to pace and † †
asks me to pass the wine † †
† †
then, I hear her sigh † †
how much is enough? †  
she asks, too much? †
all I can tell her are lies †  
† †
she implies I want to die † †
then gets up and rushes †  
to find her clothes while †  
saying to take this as a sign †
†† †
I canít stay on cloud nine †  
she cries, Iím so sorry †  
No, I reply, I am sorry.. Go! †
before you change your mind †  
† †
† †
† †
