A Single Kiss

with every single cleansing breath
with each crisp and rising star
waking from my somber death
through yards and yards of harmful scars
ripped clean and freshly bled
like rusty rain through opened bars
to courtyards resting down beneath
marbled floors and luxury cars
I watch the world's aging souls
spinning recklessly out of control

I've tortured myself a thousand
fold was swept away by the winter's cold
into a void where I stumbled blind
lost sight because of my angry mind
teamed with a crippled heart
that was more than just ripped apart
was thrown away into this dark abyss
where I missed the chance for a single kiss

move me into midnight
where the stars shine their brightest light
glistening in memory of tides gone by
a dozen at a time and time again
visiting the days when she was my only friend
singing softly with every word and then
she was gone again like a gentle gust
of rustling wind
or a fading sigh of that single
dying . . . breath . . .
