Fog on a Mirror

I wasn't ready for the things that I learned,
of the breaking of hearts or how the world turns.
I quench all the fires with whiskey that burns
cause in your November arms I will never find warmth.

You weren't ready for a love that was true,
You were born for the sun, and my heart is the moon.
Colors surround you, I can just sing the blues.
My winter-born heart always plays out of tune.

Now I'm older and wiser, I can see crystal clear,
That I fell for your love, like you fell for my fear.
There's something we're lacking, like fog on a mirror,
Our messages written, soon disappear.

But life has it's way with every person I've met,
Like insects surrounded by a young child's net.
And I am imperfect, on this you can bet,
I only drink to remember, just how to forget.

Oh! How the fires from my

Oh! How the fires from my embers steam this waking of images.
Written out heartbreak from your heartstrings.
Dangling.
Words within a mirror conjured on a plastic screen.
How tormenting this beauty.
Poetry that is hand held placed gently within the confines of a heart.
Mine.

Brilliancy in the making.
Impeccable.
