Story Bones

Reflections were cast in an invisible space
Shadows formed in an incandescent way
They both stared, silently, mouths agape

"How could it have possibly gotten this way?"
She asked the air, expecting no answer in return

He spoke softly, "I think this is what happens when Heaven burns."

He spoke with no emotion, simply stating his thought
She stared into the shadows, seemingly caught
With a blink, he shied away from the scene
Trying to remember something, like this, he'd seen
She continued to gaze, transfixed by its weight
If this is the end, she thought, suddenly pained
Then we have no choice, but to quietly abstain.
