Purchase

I know it is folly,
Considering your whereabouts –
Where would we be? –;
Considering what you are.

You are light as a leaflet,
And I am heavy as snow
On top of a wasteland dune.

Yet I would rather burn in an instant
For a minute with you
Than live on for ever
On this desolate shore.

I know it is folly;
I am just buying time
To spend with you.
