the sky is everywhere

rehash the ashes of the past
as the memories ignite
you lose sight of tonight

of the falling leaves that
have frosty sleeves and
fall endlessly

you missed the snow again:
the bare branches like veins
and stars shoot up their arms

the sky is everywhere, you said
so don't lose sight of the stars
take the embers and remember

you only have tonight
so don't get blindsided
by the slivered lining
