No future?

Bride's dummy behind a steamy windowSuspended, on the edge of the city of nothingness
A day in paradise
One night in hell
A red cat is purring
Hopping among our ghosts, through our ruins
Stolen kisses
Hugs missed
Words without love
The bride is crying for the past
that steals the future
The groom weeps today
for the lost past
I’m weepin’
for their yesterday
for their today
for my tomorrow
Without love
No future.

Sospesi, sul limite della città del nulla
Un giorno in paradiso
Una notte all’inferno
Un gatto rosso fa le fusa
saltellando tra i nostri fantasmi, tra le nostre rovine
Baci rubati
Abbracci mancati
Parole senza amore
La sposa piange il passato
che gli ruba il futuro
Lo sposo piange oggi
per il passato perduto
Io sto piangendo
per il loro ieri
per il loro oggi
per il mio domani
Senza amore
Nessun futuro.
_ Hugh S. Graves _
