“Cinder”.

Penciling lines under penicillin vines.
Doing rewrite after rewrite
In the shadows of my mind.
Adding one to take away.
You left a year ago today.
“I don’t love you anymore” is the price I had to pay.
Filling time and killing wine
In the solace of our kind.
Undevoted to this crime.
Underwater, undermined.

Though I lay my heart in hands apart.
I’m torn in two, I’m bleeding you.
With veils aflame, sweet cinder glow.
Please leave my head, let me let you go.

Things are different now
Than they used to be.
I’ve moved past me against you
To me versus me.
Back to where it began.
Lost with my head in the sand.
I am free in this forest.
Nothing left to deplore us.
Scattered sheep unto the killers.
All these wolves craving innards.
With the lights all a-glow
In the sky down below.

Though I lay my heart in hands apart.
I’m torn in two, I’m bleeding you.
With veils aflame, sweet cinder glow.
Please exit my head, let me let you go.

Look in my eyes without the lies.
We paralyze.
See past the trace of our disgrace.
In your embrace.

I lay my heart in hands apart.
I’m torn in two, I’m bleeding you.
