A lesson learned through overcoming obstacles.
|Painted shadows across every closing door-
Such a haunting welcome for such a welcomed war.
The last thing I saw was vultures circling in your eyes,
Window- shopping souls, across moonlit skies.
So much time wasted- pasty and wasted.
I will never forget- and it’s hard to remember-
Sweetness ever tasting so bitter.
Those memories tangle around my tongue.
Almost died so many times- choke it down.
Almost lived so many lives- kind of drowned.
But higher tonight, dancing above the ground,
Out of sight and faint of sound- the only love I ever found.
