Through the glass
Love falls
Within the past
Memories dance
They never last
Head in my hands
As I stare overhead
At the hourglass

Stairs broken
Wheels unspoken
I fell
Grasping for air

the ones without brakes,
along rusty tracks,
trying to keep up with trains

but like life,

we always got left behind.
