All That's Left


this moment is slipping
out of my hands, love
and i'm trying to stop it
trying to glue it in place
with my tears, sweat and blood
but i feel it, like a rope
tossed out as a lifeline
and with each strand,
leaves a little bit of hope
leaves a little bit of love
until these dreams lie lifeless
at my feet and all that's left
are these cascading tears
and a lonely catch in my breath.
