An ode to the fallen
Whilst I stand in the Sun,
Followed by my darker companion,,
I look to the dazzling flames,
That fail to rejuvenate my shattered remains..
Minutes turn to hours,
Hours bleed to days..
Times flash back as each living moment pass..
Memories that I don't own anymore..
For the past that was not purely mine...
For the days I shared with my love...
I don't wish to strain my eyes..
All the wishes withheld,
not all are ever fulfilled..
For all we are, are fragments of creation..
Often condemned to pain on the treacherous paths..
I walk in rain..where no one will see my tears..
And the drops shall shine,
The whole world curled in the tiny one...
All except me..
I cheer still...not all the nights are ever solitary...
Awaiting a spring, that will perhaps never ome...
Birds don't fancy my windows anymore..
They prefer to fly..but I haven't been so bold..
If you wanted to break my heart,
You could have rather asked..
Gladly I would have given..for all times to come..
You always had a greater right..
I would have left it at your mercy...
and live without it somehow...
Then losing you,
And live lifeless, forever after...
Standing beyond my own reflection..
