Every tunnel of love stalls
The lights flicker on and off
The water looks dirty
I can still see wishes on the bottom
Coins tossed by hands interlocked
You’ll always be my lover
Sudden jerk
Wires exposed
Animated caricatures frozen by lack of current
Electrodes eroded by overuse and lack of care
Retouched
Fond smiles look brand new underneath replaced bulbs
Inspired by their fade
Hands brighten their face
Waters cleaned of memories
New wishes for Love
You’ll always be my lover
The
Next in line enjoy the ride
Through
The tunnel of Love.
