Remains of Summer Memories

All these days

I'll forever cherish

In the confines of my heart

The faces of ten years ago

Like fingerprints on my heart

How can I breathe

When fear chokes my every breath?

How can I balance

Six inches from death?

Now, the momentum we've created

Comes to a screeching halt

This angel comes crashing down

On her hands and knees she crawls

How can I breathe

When fear chokes my every breath?

How many of your lies

Will I be fed?

The remains of summer memories

Spent so far away

Free from the fear or jealousy

That plagues our lives today

Now that promises we're broken

Enemies were made

We spend our precious time pointing fingers

Trying to place the blame

The remains of what's left

Of our past

Of a future yet to come

Of the battles that we've lost

And the fights that we have won
