I don't want my love
To be buried under the ocean
To be dug up by archaeologists
And have them wonder what it all meant

I don't want my love
To be put on the back burner
To stay on the stove, forgotten
And burn the whole house down

I don't want my love
To be outsourced to China
To use child labor
And double production rates

I don't want my love
To be thrown into the gutter
To be swept up by the street cleaners
On the second Wednesday of the month

I don't want my love
To lay at the bottom of the bathtub
Collecting mold and grime
With the plastic dinosaurs and army men

I don't want my love
To sit behind the counter
To glance at the clock on the wall
Wondering when its shift will end

I don't want my love
To be irregular, intolerant
Irrational, irrelevant
Forgotten or abused

I just want my love
To break free from these metaphors
To go past the words and
Go into the sky
