Colors explodedBreaking up solid landscapeWith their vibrant tones, In time for the fluctuation-The returnThe exit-Of never ending feetAnd roaming tires,Petals waved in unison Good-byes and welcomesBut we never knowWhich was meant for us.
We sprinkled memoriesOver drinks and ice,The added flavorAnd the burn we neededTo drown the concoctionsOur tales produced.When neither of usCould find the truth At the end of the linesWe pulled to the tableWith us, Both thinking we knew best,Without shared space And shared grievances.
Cigarettes burnEmber bright in the night,Flames of hopeAnd bitter endingsLeading the gazeOf star-crossed loversThat have wandered farFrom path paved.Expectations wavedIn response to planAnd wandering minds,Roots tripping,Catching thought sure-footing,Threats of tumblesWith cigarette flicker in mind.Voyage underway,With glances backTrees and rocks movedCovering path where came-Darkness behindWhere once sure bright-And minds wonderThe reason for followingCancerous brillianceIn flickering flame. Time flashed,Cementing their choiceTo chase the flame,In haste and cunning--Before burn out.
The water stole the moment,Turning peace to turmoil,Carrying the bodiesTo rocks and shoreWith no warning of the changeThey would find.
