A Lovers End

by Dustin Burmingham

We took this Iron ore and set it in the deepest pit
Watch it glow to a thousand suns
We used our arsenal to force what we want into shape
Watch it coalesce to our vision
We bound this Foundation with brute strength
And time will let it Crack

We decorated all this with lies
Furnished with lifeless Smiles
Wasted by caustic power
Worn thin from electric sex

And like the Tower of Babel
Our hearts will collapse
