A song I wrote a while back and turned into a poem…



Fires burning all around but my body’s cold

Cinders falling to the ground as my life unfolds

Where was she then? Where is she now?

I thought that we had our vows.

What did I do? Where did I go wrong?

I thought that our love was going strong.


But I guess I was wrong; holding on to dreams

While my life was falling apart at its seams

I guess I was wrong; it would seem

And all I want to do is shout and scream

As the embers fall…

As the embers fall…


Darkness, desolation, that’s all I know

Starkness, damnation, look out below

Where am I now? Where was I then?

Didn’t think that this would happen again.

What did I do? What can I do?

I thought that our love was true.


But I guess I was wrong; holding on to dreams

While my life was falling apart at its seams

I guess I was wrong; it would seem

And all I want to do is shout and scream

As the embers fall…

As the embers fall…


As the embers fall…
