"An Atheist in Love" 

This life to hold you
This time to share
moments
cold mountain naps
rushing ocean and
salt scented
sun lazied conversations
dark celestial gazings
lying on barren winter
fields
(hard and dead)
These years to adore you
These days to love you
and
cause your laughter
fill your days with smiles
bright and warm
for I cannot
love you past the grave
nor retain any memory
of the sweetness of your eyes
we will
vanish
all consciousness erased
and that will be the end
of it
There will be no
you
or
I
nor
Heaven
how I pray
there was a heaven
big and empty
waiting for vapourous ships
full of the ghosts of lovers
to dock at its marble harbour
and fills its golden streets
or
Hell

I even wish there was a
Hell
with its weeping
and gnashing of teeth
with its consuming
darkness
and
utter
loneliness

so at least
then
I'd exist enough
to think
of you
