Small translucent petals stuck to your skin
Dance away in the breeze
And seasoned the October winds
I heard your halo slowly form
As cold crashing ships
Above us drift
Catching their massive misty sails
On the child like limbs of slow burning stars
I thought of how impossibly warm your palm was
Though slipping away
So far away
Your voice is the only one I can still clearly hear
Whenever I open my mouth to scream
"How long can you wait?"

It's hard to ever know
which worlds have ended with your words
and harder to know just when.
I thought I saw a small light there
glow for just a second
within the edges of the frame where we had been
I turned you over in my hands
and traced the image
of that long gone town
A cardinal mask
that you wore as your phantom crown
And there where the clouds used to gather,
on the hill where we used to play,
A simple fact
has come to pass.
"When we look, we look away"
