Ashes and Smoke

I can never tell you why I’m broken

Why my lips tremble at your name
Why my eyes widen at your glance
Why my hands feel strangely empty

I can never tell you why I’m lost

Why to some far distant place I gaze
Where the forest meets the sky
Beyond a winding crimson river

There’s a place, you knew it once
Where a night lasts forever, where
We stand hand in hand like specters

I can only tell you everything ends

Only the memory of you remains
Like letters discarded in a fireplace

Ashes and smoke and nothing else
