Frosted Embers

Frosted Embers

You instilled cadence in darkness

I dislodged trust, while trying look for brightness

You filled our togetherness with utopian dreams

I dug into my solitude, heralding dystopian nightmares

Picking me up, you gathered my flinders

Jettisoning hope, I dispersed all of myself

With your words, you moved us up with certitude

I maintained my silence, enswathed by doubt

You’ve put in your best to sustain balance

I tipped the scales with my own baggage 

You’ve ventured into a million storms for me

I’ve nurtured my indolence

You chased my embers lighting up the night sky

I stay put like a frost, muted by the morning glow!
