Tales

fireworks

Tears on New Year’s Eve

Had me caught on reverie

Loneliness behind the smiles

Keep the ghosts out of bay.

 

Yesterday went like a dream

Had me wishing it were all real

Had my thoughts unguarded

Drinking the truth with  wine.

 

I look up at the sky

Where I rumbled my thanks

Lonely eve to bury the past

And create a new life.
