When Amber Ran Away

-

Frozen skin again; I cannot break through

With soft words and gentle jaded eyes

My hands caress the border of death

Feeling the melted etchings of chiseled ice

And as fingertips graze over your scarred chest

There is no heartbeat left

My voice is abandoned to the chaotic notes of silence

-

Please. Just tell me

This is only a dream

I had the same nightmare yesterday

And you woke up fine

We woke up fine

-

Struck in horror of twilight

There is no color left in your eyes

Amber ran away with all your tears

And there's no softness to your touch

It's harsh and rough, demanding nothing here

Your hands have grown cold

On the grazing of my skin

I feel your loss

I feel empty

-

Please. Just tell me

This is only a dream

I had the same nightmare yesterday

And you woke up fine

We woke up fine

-

Just one last time

Run your finger tips along my lips

And stop all words from breaking

Just look at me

Alive

-

Now wake up

And tell me

Where did amber run to?
