singer silenced

lips stitched and spirit shrouded
the mist of my heart muffled
fumbling along in my shadows
what drew me to your vibrancy?
like a strobe flashing after midnight
exposing the depth of your agony
and I thought to give comfort
to offer a loving hand
showing without speaking
I do understand
but you turned the tables
rescuing me
reviving my embers and stoking the flame
where I spoke in tones that were gentle
you raised your voice with strength
and such passionate conviction
coaxing notes long silenced from my throat
you with your fierce and your fire
so shattered and so fragile
I could not protect you
from where you would go
or where you had been
innocence unguarded falls hard
devils always find their way in
fingers braided tightly
together we went on fighting
butterflies lifting unfettered
opal souls burning with fire
how is it you've vanished?
gone where I cannot follow
and the music is silent
how can I sing now?
