The Gorgeous Explosions

Paint the sky in Halloween
Flames illuminating the horizon
Streaked with plumes of smoke
The embers will drift from the heavens
Landing upon our warm cheeks like kisses
Sparks will dance in our fevered eyes
Spectral fireworks are burning over Eavestown tonight

We dance
In the beauty of this night
Shedding skin and letting go of life
I can say all the things that were locked inside
Let them pour from my mouth
Like fountains of holy water
We’ll drown in pure redemption

The only thing found in the wreckage
Will be good luck charms and wedding bands
All else
Will be completely gone
Erased from light and time
Never was, and never will be
Fading voices sing
This final elegy
