Theropods always leave

Cold-blooded diplodocus

Comet-hot lover

Make me remember

Every scale down your tail

Make me quiver

Beneath your sickle claw

Catch me

Beat me

Love me 

Leave me

Poor me to think love meant forever

Poor me to wilt under pink cotton candy

La Brea skies

Meet me in the darkness again

And I’ll make you love me

Blackout in the tar, eternal…

Our hearts will thunder weaker

And weaker

Soaked in Pimm’s No. 1 Cup
