------------------------------------------

casting out reflections
of a bliss that turned to fiction
where the characters are paper
the characters are withered
and one is torn
one is burnt

coming to declension
hence the theme of separation
when the dialogues are severed
and nothing's gonna alter
this denouement
read and heard

i fared through the lines
lost within scenes
the inks dress the mind
in dry longing

lingering illusions
stolen thoughts in recollection
like a pen dying on paper
the characters dismembered
and fell apart
one was torn

i stared down the lines
and all between
there's nothing to find
only endings

in quoting excerpts from Past's memoirs
blistered words running towards nowhere

we lie amidst the chapters of farewells and hereafters

this is all we are for now
when the pages turn, we'll slowly burn
this is all we are for now

i stared down the lines
and all between
there's nothing to find
only endings

this is all we are for now
only endings
