The leaves are falling, just like I used to.
Until life allowed me to start anew
I cannot revert to how I was before
but I don’t know
what sweetness tastes like anymore.
Chills in the air crawl up my spine
while the ground gets painted golden.
When I consider making you mine,
I realise we’re both too broken.
The breeze uncloaks the trees,
Reveals the barren souls within.
We’re just two empty bodies
Doomed, never to fall again.
