a shadow sits upon us
it shades the past in scarlet tones
it enrages the things that once were calm
and calls for an end to hope.
love is gone away now
it hides beneath a veneer of regret
it shatters beneath the weight of the end
and wishes for better days, now long gone.
Together, we seek the future.
Do not despair, the past is as it was
Both good and bad, the parts
Will live with us tomorrow.
