Chain Reaction

I've been recovering
      from my last love affair
          for six months,

and I've been chasing
      another woman who keeps
          hooking me in and pushing me away.

I feel like a yo-yo
      with all its ambiguity
          and its ups and downs.

I've even called up God
      and asked her for a date -
          she hung up in a huff.

Western civilization is collapsing
      all around me and
          I keep trying to save it,

as if time wasn't
      a magnetic chain binding me,
          the stars and the black holes together.

I mustnt forget -
      there is a chain reaction
          breaking everything apart,

but I hold the reins of wild love
      that guide and unite
          everything together again..
