Back to who we were before.
I watch us dance, amidst the gray
Before the trees began to sway.
Promises, in tethered dreams
But safety wasn't what it seemed.
I felt the chill
I watched the skies
They mocked my desperate, muffled cries.
Broken glass and flooded streets,
She moved the ground beneath my feet.
A force delivered you from me
Now, there are things I cannot see.
Red rubber balls and folded hands
Lay punctured, drowning in the sand.
The aftermath, and I am lost
In nature's unforgiving cost.
But that same wind that bent the trees
She moves the clouds, and lifts the seeds.
And even though I can't forget
The stars will burn.
The sun shall set.
On remnants of a life now made
Of siren sounds and yesterdays.
