i search for my lover in the cold, dark recesses of my mind
lost and alone, thorns prick my flesh
i cry out to her from my longing heart but no answer
her voice silent now, cold and still
my weary eyes strain for but a glimpse of her sun that once ruled over my skies
gone now, ripped from my sight
all is made black, only shadows remain
like a blind man, my hands reach out to touch, to hold, to feel her warmth once more
nothing, left stumbling, wandering aimlessly, broken
wait, there, a tiny flame burning in the distance
small, unquenchable, smoldering hot
my lover gone now, her memory still carried in my heart
