If you fall

If you fall in love with people like me

I will take you to museums parks, and monuments

I will take you to every place that promises permanence
Hoping that in every place you may find forever in those brief moments
we share

for we encrypt histories in monuments
and every piece of art adds value to collector’s items

I want to freeze our stories with those artifacts you see
and when your eyes can no longer find beauty in me
you can always look back at those paintings
for paintings outlive my youth
hoping that the details of my face are crystallized
in those paintings you see

I will take you to places born with stories
so that even if you choose to forget our story
You will never forget the heroes and artists
whose lives and works outweigh our story

I will always like to take you to museums
I will always want to be with you in museums
because in those places we make an illusion of forever
