Ashes

Ashes

A Poem by Sweet

A throbbing noise stuck in my head.

Please make it stop.

I open my eyes and wonder, why do they hurt?

Looking around searching for beauty, but all I see is a wasteland.

The remnant of what once was.

What happened here, I can’t recall.

The more I try to understand, the more my head screams to stop.

Then my heart joins it, making me realize the stabbing pain within it.

An open wound that I thought closed is now bleeding.

I watch it get bigger and can’t make it stop.

The more I try, the more it hurts.

Please make it stop.

A burning smell reaches my nose.

A thought comes creeping in… no… a flashback!

A fire…

It’s all clear now and so it’s the grief that accompanies that realization.

I watched it all burn; I saw my dreams burn, and you along with them!

I couldn’t fight it, I couldn’t stop it.

The more I tried, the more it grew hot and strong.

An infernal spiral that consumed us both.

Please tell me it will stop.

Tell me that I will wake up.

That soon enough I will realize that it was just a bad dream!

Gasping for air, my lungs feel so empty.

These ashes are suffocating me. They are burying me.

Reminding me that things will never be the same, everything has to be rebuilt.

 

Please… Help me…

 

To rise……..

From the…………

Ashes…………………….
