    I watched the sun fall, and I was consumed by dark.
    An ember in my hand I fell apart.
    The dancing flame settled & I crumbled down there in my car.
    I drove to the lake, I saw myself hit the water. The windows open and the surface depleting. With eyes open and lungs filling.
    I said goodbye.
    But I drove away. Empty threats and hopeful wishing.
    I saw the stars light up my sky, night after night.
    They burned away, and in the ashes I laid.
    I saw the sun rise and I grabbed on.
    Hanging again, with another flame in my grasp.
