Alchemy (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I am left
Free-floating up in the air
I am left
Wondering if I should care
I am left
Here, when I should have been there
I am left
Floating here, up in the air

I have fallen
Deep to the darkest of seas
I have fallen
As a sinner might fall to her knees
I have fallen
So short of my promise to please
I have fallen
Down to the depth of the seas

I burn
Deeply I turn in the fire
I burn
Cruelty’s child to inspire
I burn
Faceless, I writhe on the pyre
I burn
Soul wrenching death in the fire

I lie still
Deep in the arms of the earth
I lie still
Waiting the time for re-birth
I lie still
Trading my tears for cold mirth
I lie still
Cradled within mother earth
