Shape Of Your Shadow

The shape of your shadow
Is dancing on the floor
The shade of fine tobacco
I never could afford

The light outside the window
Is seeping through the cracks
A memory made out of tinsel
Shining against the black

And the only two things I know
The only two things
The only two things there are
Are my breath so shallow
And the shape of your shadow

The mornings are sewn together
A pale surrender into the night
You were once my first forever
Until your letter spelled goodbye
