Scorched Flags

Scorched Flags

A Poem by JayJayBlue
"

About uncertainty, deciding whether something is worth risking everything for

"
And we've spun ourselves out into the cold
The stars realign and we're now truly lost
As our eyes interlock
Confusion dwells, and doubt ascends

We'll break out but I know you're holding back
I'll try to make you smile one last time
Take a look at the ground and wonder why
In your heart there's only empty space

My heart could synchronise with yours
If you allow yourself a risk of emotion
Scatter the tears to the wind
And become another soul in the ocean
We'll be triumphant
Or we'll be nothing at all 

Now the flag of victory is scorched 
And our tattoos proclaiming our love
Are carved out of our skin
A romance far from white and saintly
Attracted and destroyed by our mutual sins

Endless rush of colder waters take us down
Flailing hopelessly waiting for the end
You look around for some distant shore
All the while I'm feeling ignored

None of us wanted this
Or do we know if it will continue
Safe to say I enjoyed the shortest of rides
Even if we're now both condemned 

Now the flag of victory is scorched 
And our tattoos proclaiming our love
Are carved out of our skin
A romance far from white and saintly
Attracted and destroyed by our mutual sins
