"An Invitation" by Cristian Tamayo
Come live with me and be my love.
What is there to lose since now the world becomes undone?
We are unhinged and spiraling into the abyss -
ash and smoke intermix - low light like morning mist.
These days seem rather bleak,
but do not forget the evenings we spent by the beach
basking under the rays of the California sun.
A place I would not dare to take just anyone.
I know that it has been quite a while
since we have been together and I made you smile.
I have felt the distance growing,
but remember how we were so easy-going.
I promise if the redwood trees survive
that you and I will walk them and finally feel truly alive.
Nature has a way of pulling through
and so will I and so will you.
