Burn Out to Fade Away

Ocherous flame dances the same Flicker and untamed, gentle crackles, call a name Myrrh scented candles illuminate the room One last time always seems to soon Auburn hair burned wildly here Memories of a yesteryear  When they all finally burn out So too will my heart melt like the wax […]

Slow Dance

A nervous mess In the wake of what is To finally meet you Feet growing cold Runaway with my heart Not so bold After all, spreading cold fingers apart In my mind I dance with you to warm up For what feels like the finish of a wait  Is just […]

Life Happens

The distance grows further With every word untouched Your tongue used to transfer to mine Everything you ever worried about Sharing your grief, the sorrow All goodnights and see you tomorrow But the sun is up And perhaps we have given Far too much to simply walk away A decision […]

Passing On
