Unknown

I lit the match, how about that
I watched the smoke
Coat the sky with black
I held my breath
For a second chance
Yet was handed a weight
With a final glance

The ash all that’s left behind
Between the rocks and broken dreams
Nothing quite– what it seems
It’s another breath til’ sundown
Yet it seems worlds away

This hole that’s inside
Is stretching my skin
It can’t be patched
I’m breaking again
The weight of a moment
The twist of a smile
The pulse that can’t quit
While choked by denial

It’s the things we can’t grasp
That suffocate the chance to grow
Engraved by the hopeless theme
Who we are will never know
