caution: the inevitable pull of cliche
unknown

Come darling,
 1
let us throw caution to the wind
 2
and run
 3
run away from here.
 4
Leave those petty words
 5
hanging in the air
 6
and your suit jacket on the chair.
 7
Ignore all politicians and silly wars
 8
turn our heads away from broken laws.
 9
Neglect all rules of our roles,
 10
add disloyalty to all protocols.
 11
Wed all benefits to all risks,
 12
divorce all well-respected habits.
 13
Forward all obligations to eternity
 14
fake a well-behaved obituary.
 15
 
 
 
 
Come let us pour wine until overflow
 16
and sleep all day in each other's clothes.
 17
Feast until we distort our belts,
 18
sing and shout until hoarse throats.
 19
Kiss without a conditional care
 20
remind all gods we don't care.
 21
Make love until we fall on the floor
 22
and then make more love
 23
until we're sore.
 24
Come my darling
 25
let us throw caution to the wind,
 26
to disintegrate
 27
into our
 28
dreams.
 29





No matter the maturity, we all yearn for fantasy.
