In the exhale
I inhale
this defeat
So suddenly this grey
driving the colours away
The blues go cold
Embers in the rain
So suddenly this rain
In the dark and empty streets
Echoing your name

For too long
This holding on
Too familiar with the fighting
This letting go
of your warmth
So suddenly this rain
and the greys echoing your name
Embracing the shattering emptiness
I stand alone
in this rain
