Was it so very easy
Getting over me
Did it take even a moment
Before you could breathe
Without feeling like each breath was your last

I waited on you to say
The words to make me stay
I languished in the silence
And was vanquished by the distance 
My presence 
Was not required 

So now as the alter smolders in air
Unfit to breathe
I say let it burn
Let it all burn
And be consumed in the cleansing fire 

As the embers die and the ashes cool
I offer up a prayer to the nameless, faceless
Gods of Destiny in thanks for the future ahead
And the road as yet untraveled-TheMinstrel
