    A Sunset to Hold Onto...

    I saw myself from the outside that day
    Body weak and helpless, eyes glazed in dismay
    I saw myself turn to search your eyes for guidance
    But fire fell from the sky that day in nonsense

    We were just friends, but I always liked you
    I was too shy and hid my soul from view
    Yet now as the clouds shriek hell's violence
    I can finally hold your soft hand in silence

    Shattered flecks of glass now collect on the grass
    Like dewdrops of rain, they glow in a mass
    My home looks haunted as it's shredded in two
    But the home in my heart is forever with you

    This world is bitter and I will not miss it
    In your eyes I'll find solace from being a misfit
    I would kiss you now, but my lips have bled dry
    And my skin is crawling from the blood-red sky

    The maw of the heavens has opened wide
    Intuition rattles a final resting chide
    Our eye's are still locked, now we turn in set
    To watch the grand view of a bitter-sweet sunset

    I felt your tears caress my cheek that day
    It was the last thing I felt 'fore our bodies swept away
    Like dust we floated and mixed with the earth
    No longer a body, but remains of our mirth

    I've never been a man to plead the world's end
    But to touch your sweet hand, I would die once again.
