Your Electric Face

You were the fresh talking peach,
The sunny harmony of a big world,
The monumental new day strike.

You spoke the sleepy wisdoms of honey
And laughed like the mellowest siren,

But your liquid eyes
Dawned behind windows
As you knuckled my spine
And then strayed like the wind.

Your electric face was like a disease
And you left me talking to failure,
Looking high into an empty sky empire,
My stare wild as dust
As the stars learned nostalgia.
