Soft as feathers

Kisses scattering, shattering

Like glass upon the floor

Resembles stars up in the sky.

Drops of blood

Promises of splendor, grandeur

Silver and gold

Promises of night rides, fireflies.

Hard as steel

Guns tracing, gracing

My skin shivering

As if buried in snow.

Drops of rain

Promises of forever, eternity

Hot and cold

Promises of honesty, sincerity.

Cruel as sunshine

Spitting truth, youth

Wasted away by your side

Or was I always left behind?
