I can only hope
That when I said I love you
After you said if you walked 
Into the church
It would burn to the ground
That when you took the needle
And your consciousness left you
That love was waiting there
To embrace you in their arms 
Like I barely could
You seemed so distant
The last time I saw you 
And the pictures they post 
With smiles so frozen and static
I have to believe
That love breaks through
And burns all our frailties 
Along with everything else
That breathes goodbye
To the ground of our being
Which is love—
