Carpet of Love / Muscles of Solitude

Our unassuming carpet
Of love and sweat and dreams
Left lonesome in the
Corner of this vacant room —

And gone are faintest smells
Of peaches and from sorest lips
Those noble bells of jubilation —

What stays are shadow blankets
On every severed muscle — 
Still full of grievous memories
And undiluted solitude
