Sunrise

I swore I’d watch this place burn to the ground

 

See you behind the fire as it danced

 

Our broken hearts cried out but they were bound

 

Inside their cage the enemy advanced

 

These empty streets can't nullify my rage

 

I sit alone and try to think despite

 

I pray my fears will in someway assuage

 

But until then, come sit with me tonight.

 

And suddenly as we walk down this road

 

I wouldn’t have it any other way

 

The thoughts that caused your spirit to erode

 

Can't touch us as we watch the wake of day

 

This blushing sky behind a lost-not-found

 

I promise you I’ll burn it to the ground

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
