flameless

damommza and sunovawot

shadows grow longer as bright embers fly
all thoughts float up to a dark, moonless sky

while deep sorrow fills my lungs just like dust,
I once had your love, you once had my trust.

like a blind moth drawn to a flameless wick
while my love was bad, your passion was sick

a sickness you hid with meticulous care
that served to do nothing but bring me despair

I gave and you took until I was near spent
a vagrant lost soul in a maze of torment

so sit here and listen to my story of woe
then shake off the shivers and carelessly go
