When we were lovers
we sucked the same toffee
shared juice from the same glass
ate cubes of sautéed tofu from off the same skewer

We walked hand in hand in the dark
spent the same nights together
kissed the same sky

C'est La Vie

like the weather,
compress us
release us
force us to contract and expand
We breathe
we must be alive

Season follows season
Difference convinces
that tomorrow will move on from today
We must be going somewhere

I'd rather play
King to King
or King to Queen
but you want me
to sacrifice a Pawn.
Match cancelled
