What has been done, cannot be forgotten.

Through Smoke, I Ran

Match stick houses and a barely paved road

Lead to where tears once flowed

Silent threats and quieter breaths

Led to many senseless deaths.

Through hazy thoughts and shattered dreams

The stars sacrificed their simple gleams

Before an aching body sought

The end of the violence wrought.

The price, the pain, the thrust of shame

A simple choice left me to blame

Thoughts, coercion, the force of a moment

Has abandoned me in years of torment.

Crystalized glass, emblazoned heat

Fears that never abated of hatred and self-defeat

Unspoken words whirl in my head

The pain says I am alive, but I am mostly dead.

The wheres and whys to fix the problem

Became the angels that had at once fallen

Crashing dissolving in an infiltrated design

The only relief was the one in my mind

The price, the pain, the thrust of shame

A simple choice left me to blame

Thoughts, coercion, the force of a moment

Has abandoned me in years of torment.

I made my choice

I wanted back my voice

I fled

Bloody and red

Through smoke, I ran

My escape the only plan

Hit and betrayed

How the moments seemed to stray

Hung low still

You received your fill

Your kindness mistook

The burn that shook

Laid bare in the smoke

To hide within that cloak

I ran to forget,

Your unforgettable theft.

The price, the pain, the thrust of shame

A simple choice left me to blame

Thoughts, coercion, the force of a moment

Has abandoned me in years of torment.
