immortal rain
my cheek
that faded kiss
I feel
not so much alive
a dying dream
as I hear
the violins
crying in the wind
as snow
like tiny flowers
floating to the ground
as I drown
in memories
soft and sweet
your smile
gave me life
and hope
that went awry
as you fell
I cried
frozen in my eyes
tears for you
I swore
that I would try
to keep you
by my side
safe and sound
but the monsters
that we found
were life, and love,
and nothing
from Above
ever cared
your hair
like night
and your face
like the stars
immortal
in my mind
in my heart
however far
I wander
words fall
like raindrops
from memories
long past
you never asked
me to be
your savior
I cannot waver
any more
than I can stand
this fate
forced to choose
life or nothing
love or nothing
you or nothing
nothing else
matters
you crush
you pretend
there's no end
but it's over
in a heartbeat
flash of lightning
falling rain
rain
rain
fills an ocean
far away
an empty soul
becomes a human
and an angel
flies away
on shining wings
brighter
than life
God
gives
us
hope
you sing
praying
it's the truth
knowing
in the end
you won't return
and smiles
fade
like summer rain
into the distance
of a sky
you loved
and lost
forever.
