A Friend Once Lost

Crackling and sizzling under the watchful eye of the night
Popping and sparkling with such delight

Gray smog heavy in the air
It licks, it snatches, it curls my hair

The heat is oppressive and pushes down on my heart
It makes shadows on my face like some dark art

Red, orange, and yellow
Strings plucked from a cello

Take me, take me, take me, I plead
Something unexplainable has come over me

As I light you up and watch you slip away
I think of all those times I let you play

I should have been careful; you should have taken the time
As I light your fire I light mine

Crackling, sizzling, please take flight
Don’t turn around, oh watchful eye of the night
