Melted Love

I laid down beside you
But you’re no longer there
My skin turned to bronze
The sun burnt through
Like a fetus I await to be born again
To show you my heart
I look where you lay
But your body melted away
Where did you go?
To a lover of old
Or a family grave
I will stay here
Till the copper and tin disintegrate
Turn me to ashes that
Will haunt you forever
