State of Me

Imagine that
The state of me after what you’ve done to me.
Imagine that. It was so easy to slip
Into this, 
The breeze
So sweet, gentle and raging 
Darling embrace me.
‘Kill your darlings’
And embrace me
Let’s dance so you can fuse with me
Become we.
Imagine that,
Falling instantly?
Falling dismally?
Look at the state of me 
While fusing with you 
As we become 
And this might be the last one…
You always chose a sentimental song to send us off.
So after this
We could leave.
