Fateful

Stars in your eyes
Truth in the lies
It’s not too late
To tempt our fate

A new tragedy comes along
Different words to a familiar song
Wasn’t supposed to be like this
Memories too painful to miss

Let tears fall where they may
Nothing can ruin a perfect day
Forgive before it’s all gone
Life is short, days are long

How long does forever last
Future blends into the past
Today is all we can give
This life is all we can live

An empty chair remains
No more rusty chains
It always felt so real
Until nothing left to feel.


A poem by Jason S. Sullivan, 11-23-20
