Scented Auburn

Scented Auburn

now I dream in scented auburn
of the unsuspecting days
when I held the keys to heaven
and then gave them all away
it’s too easy feeling foolish
when we want so much to win
but to dream in scented auburn
I would do it all again

I have burnt-sienna memories
of her kisses on the beach
and the lessons I took with me
thinking I was there to teach
in my heart I hold the feelings
I could never reproduce
in my music and my writing
I have tried… but it’s no use

I have topaz tinted paintings
in the corner of my mind
mapping out the peaks and valleys
of the truths I long to find
there are roads that go no further
and the path’s not always clear
but I dream in scented auburn
and my worries disappear
