Vision

I see you now,
in a more truthful light
than ever before.
Faded mascara runs down your face
like the dark dreams
through your stricken brain,
and I am sorry,
but I just couldn’t stop them.
It has been a while
since I have seen any color
in the world
and even now;
I’m staring at mountains
that I can’t really see
as the snow paints the world
into a dying gray.
Love is in no need of saving
though it is lost,
and lust is an undesired
festering splinter.
The walls around your secrets
are up high again;
splattered with
a midnight piano melody
that reverberates from your toes
to the ends of your brown hair.
Worn out chords entwined
with your scent and taste
fly from my lips
only to fall on deaf silence,
and I now realize
the end is already a memory.
