Smoke

Smoke

5-30-21

Smoke comes in through the windows

waltzing in from someone’s fire pit

They enjoy the warmth of the blaze

I’m left with the smoldering remains

So goes the parody of life

So glows the ember in the night

Not my light

Not my light

Pain comes in through many angles

Life bogs down from many tangles

This web I’m in, I think I’m choking

I can’t find my way out this time

Everything is so broken

The pieces, the pieces all around

I know I need change, I know I need something

I wish I was anywhere but here

I wish I was anyone but me

I wish I could hit the restart button

But I can’t, I know I can’t this time

I hate to feel so damn weakened

I hate to come to you on my knees

I don’t really even know how to say this

I’d rather say sorry than please

I hate to feel so damn cheated

I hate to say goodbye to it all

I don’t think I have the strength to do it

I don’t think I have the strength at all
