What do young lovers do when everything in life is against them? Run away to Mexico. :)

Let’s Run Away to Mexico

 

Each tick matches its tock in Fate’s culminating clock,

but you were nine months and eight days fast

when the hags dangled you before me to mock

our future, it too soon pattering past,

Donne’s funereal bells tolling at first sight,

no special moments meant to last,

and all my days morphed into mourning nights,

soaked to dense darkness with each thunder shock

and tempest that hung over my head in sadistic spite.

 

But you never were a feather of Fate’s flock--

you told me let’s run away to Mexico--actually, let’s walk.

I wrote this a long time ago when I had a crush on a guy I couldn't be with and he told me we should run away to Mexico.
