A thousand stars
gather in our dreams,
dancing across shattered mirrors
through the autumn leaves.

Where have these feelings lingered,
in our hearts breaking softly
as tears run down our faces
and we long for new beginnings.

Winter's touch has frozen the pool,
a seal for all the things hidden there
and a cage for all that tries to break out.

When the window opens
and this suffocating wall collapses,
we find finally our old peace of mind, comfort, and joy.

The edge of sorrow has broken,
falling into eternity.
Carry us away on the clouds,
but we know this is not the end.

All too soon we begin the dance again,
heartache, pain, and love spiraling in deadly sin.
Fight for us?
We don't, and I almost give up.
But through it all, I never lose hope.
