It's 3 AM and I can't sleep

I wander outside to try and find the stars

I'm begging them for a reason to save my soul

But all there was

Was silence

A penny for these rusted thoughts

Would teach a memory

To refuse the recollection

Of the love I gave away

And how I lost you

Oh how I lost you

Withered petals and all

Spread across the sheets

Incandescent love

Marred the image
Burning through me

Leaving an empty shell

Of inconclusive love and what ifs
