Looking past

A ribbon of black
smooth and cold
the sheer rock walls
and a twisting path

dark lies the clouds
that be for me lie
and the golden warmth
left so far behind

I know not where
which way to go
and the memories fade
of what lays behind

here I cannot be
for it will not remain
I feel it slipping away
even as memories fade

on winds the road
and the waves still crash
cold grows the sky
and the coming rain

if I try just to stand
if I do not decide
the future will crush me
and bury my remains

into the darkness
my steps they do lead
and I would not take them
of my world it does fade
