As the ground forms a sheet of mist The wind blows the trees Naked limbs, crunching their Autumns dress as they Scurry across the ground Beneath pacing feet A chill lingers in the night’s breath Running its finger tips through Hair and down backs The lightest touch, meant for human skin The moons glowing affection Syncopates the blushing sky Caressing the line where they first met A laughter fills the air Echo’s along the way Sailing across the seas Into another time Onto a place where it belongs The rough seas with Drowning waves that shock the heart And wash out the purity of it all Rage fills the crying skies The bitterness crashing down upon us both Sharp colors cutting up the sky Slice by slice by slice The waves are shifting To a louder ending The nights breath is getting heavy Choking on the thought Of storming feet The wind becomes violent Snapping hope in half Pushed under the crashing sea Intensifying the sting and hurt From the cold The waves thrashing back and forth Constantly reaching new heights The sky begins to glisten The elevation halts Resting its head Then the dawn begins to break The first light leaking through the day Stopping to open my eyes And I see you
