Briefly Incandescent

Briefly Incandescent

You were always in my dreams

Close to my heart

But we were caught between the ice and the water

Each path as treacherous as the last

Between the black night and the silent shore

Our love was breaths away from ecstasy

Briefly incandescent

But burning us to ashes

Brushed away in the wind

Our love has flown away

But its sweetness still prevails

So our souls are ever wandering

Ever seeking each other

In the last fires of every day

And In the end


To turn away
