remains

silent voices
darkened windows
nothing remains for me
here
sleep in shadow
stay in winter
nothing remains for me

close the doors and
take the spare key
nothing remains for me
there
down the stairway
past the burnt walls
nothing remains for me

I have forgotten the times
that I cried
I have forgotten the times
that you sang to me

tear the pictures down
burn the scrapbooks
nothing remains for me
here
pale they all seem
passing fantasies
nothing remains of us

wiped my eyes dry
blew the candles out
nothing remains of me
here
sold your poems
left the memories
nothing remains of you
now

we had dreams then
we were sure of them
nothing remains of that
now
it was clear then
there were two of us
nothing remains for us

time may go by
stars still chase the sun
but nothing remains for us
memories drift by
from the world we had
but nothing remains for us
here
