Aspired

Your bones
Cling still
To that wall.

A forever scene
Of your
Last stand.

Bleached,
The colour of time.
A pale reminder

That you tried

To climb higher
Than anyone

Is allowed.

Away Before The Sun Awakes

The sun sets now.
And you. 
Away down that
One clear road.
Round corners and
On, on further.
Till out of sight. 
Still.
The scene
Plays on repeat.
Repeat. 
Until.
Corners bend
Tighter.
The road
Runs thinner,
Sharper.
And the sun.
Burns red.
Evermore.
And you
Away.
To nothing.
But a burnt
Memory.
