the Burning Embers

rising from the smouldering ashes

hoping you still remember

paving a way to you

amidst the burning embers

bridging the chasm that separates

shrouded by flames of love and hate


flooded by tears

the rivers that were once dry

dreaded for years

sorrows that learned to swim



so how much deeper do i have to drown?

while your soul floats on shallow waters

drifting with a current of wild winds blown

our paths estranged, love martyred..

how much longer till you're finally found?

as i am lost here, beyond bounds..
