Pick Your Poison

post glow

moment's left for things to say,
it's fucking great it went this way.
it could have stung and left me cold,
instead i've found new light to hold.
i thank my fate for smiling change
when i reflect on yesterday.

i'll move right on now that it's done,
and keep my face lit by the sun.
no toxic air will stain my lungs,
no smoldered ashes curse my tongue.
i'm left with love inside my chest,
as everything was for the best.

you gave me things i'd never guess;
you're beautiful and nothing less.
i am golden like a child
because i had to lose your smile;
in times of softly spoken dreams
i smell the scent, i feel the steam.
