Lost soul

  • SumoMe

Mellow hues of a blood red sun,

Cast crimson shadows on my grave.

Acrid whiff of forgotten memories,

Embrace me tenderly as I lay-

A lost soul, lingering on

Tell me my love, where I went wrong

The tall grass bends its tumid head,

Anxious to cover my disfigured face.

Flowers soaked in tears, spread

Their fragile petals upon my resting place.

A lost soul, lingering on,

Tell me my love, where I went wrong

The ashes of my heart lay scattered on the ground

They pray in silence for panacea to be found

Creepers intertwine my cold, lonely home,

The moss obscures, my ornate tombstone.

A lost soul, lingering on

Tell me my love, where I went wrong

My bleeding epitaph seeks to hide,

From the inferno of your opalescent eyes.

And as one by one the days fade away,

The pain ebbs too, but the scars shall remain.

And still I sing our forgotten song,

A lost soul, lingering on

Tell me my love, where we went wrong
