Run Away With Me and Be My Love

(In Homage to Mr Marlowe)

Run away with me and be my love

And we will revel in the delight of each other’s misery.

Fall apart into my arms

And let me stitch you up – one heartache at a time.





In a thread of tears, the tapestry of your life

Entangled in my fingers and tightly woven into a blanket to keep you safe and warm.

I run each multi-coloured thread against my beating heart

Pressing it to my lips in reverence.





Hoping to keep out the past with bright colours and warm caresses.

So that we can melt into this moment.

Then, when and if – becoming here and now.





If these delights thy mind may move, then

Run away with me and be my love.
