no one to hold me
3000 years of dead trees
every forest falls

months on a mission
I trained. wanted
waited

behind the scenes
little devils tore the threads
link by link memories erase
river disappearing into sand
reasons why sink under the weight
of distraction
love melts

with your straw
you suck
our lives away
puff them back out
into little clouds

I've been living in your overcast
waiting for the skies to clear
knowing surely, they will
won't they?

after it rains
the sizzle slips a shock
to my heart
breathing again
feels familiar
and oh so foreign

I am not me
and you are not you
when do endings start?

in the dark.
there is no one to hold me
