Love (Briefly Incandescent)

In my dreams

You were always 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

Our souls ever searching

In the last fires of the day

In the end

Unable to turn away
