Burning Sky

unseen we breathed it in
and then back out again
until the fire lived inside
and darkness grew within our hearts
and tore love from inside the parts
of us we held so dear and deep and near
the brightest sun sank in the sea
and no one no where left to flee
a blood red sky knelt down and wept
and all that breathed was quickly swept
up in the raging flames burned all
to ash yesterday’s games a memory
but sadly no one left to see

    The sun is a tricky one isn’t it..we need it but in time it will swallow us whole..i love the completeness this piece leaves me with..strangely perhaps! Hope you are well and had a peaceful Easter Jae xo
