So Eden Sank To Grief

dawn's promise final.png

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Kiss Me Goodbye, I’m Defying Gravity!

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by
The rules of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes, and leap…

Died Last Night in My Dreams…

Saw all of the saints
Lock up the gates
I could not enter.
Walked into the flames
Called out your name,
But there was no answer…

And now I know my heart is a ghost town.

Forever Was in Your Eyes

It was late in September,
and I’d seen you before (and you were)
you were always the cold one,
but I was never that sure.
You were all by yourself,
staring up at a dark gray sky…

You Ruined Me

‘Cause you play me like a symphony
Play me till your fingers bleed
I’m your greatest masterpiece
You ruin me
Later when the curtain’s drawn
And no one’s there for you back home
Don’t cry to me you played me wrong
You ruin me…

Sing to Me the Song of the Stars…

There’s a song that’s inside of my soul.
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write
over and over again.
I’m awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over
and over and over again…

Five-hundred-and-three days.

Thirteen hours.

Twenty-seven minutes.

Sixteen seconds.

At first, she hadn’t kept track. The knowledge that he’d be back in her arms was enough. The occasional phone call or letter in the mail sent her heart fluttering, and she knew. She knew that in time, he’d be back. There was no need.

But then the calls stopped.

She had just arrived home from work, had barely enough time to remove her shoes at the door before the car pulled into the driveway. At first, she didn’t realize what it was. At first, she didn’t understand that it was “the car.”

Two men clad in blue exited the vehicle.

It was just after five o’clock on a Tuesday when her world came to a screeching halt.

Five-hundred-and-twenty-three days ago.

Thirteen hours.

Twenty-seven minutes.

Fifty-one… Fifty-two… Fifty-three…

Songs I Can’t Listen To…

Do you still sing alone
When you’re all by yourself?
Or do you switch to the next one
Sing for somebody else?
When you’re cold don’t forget
How this song kept us warm
You would dance on my bed
I would lay in your arms…

 

He left everything behind when he left her. It wasn’t that he was gone, perhaps because he wasn’t gone at all. It was everything. She could see him and feel him everywhere. The coat he left in the closet that still smelled of him, especially on cold days… His pillow, still laying untouched beside her own. Every nook and cranny, every shadow, every song that played on the radio was a reminder to her that he had been there once.

He had been there, with a smile brighter than the sun and arms so strong that she always felt safe, warm, and protected. He had been there to celebrate her victories and wipe away her tears.

She’d stopped listening long ago, afraid that one of those songs would play, and her resolve would crack, and the rest off the world would be able to see that she wasn’t as together as she liked to pretend that she was.

She’d never missed anything so much.

Sometimes, if she listened hard enough, she could still hear his voice, softer than a whisper, but as clear as though he was standing right behind her with his lips pressed to her ear.

“Don’t worry,” he’d always say, “I’ll see you again soon.”
