[Poetry] Recompense

This all seems so familiar

Do we need all this extra weight?
Burried, so we should leave it behind.

Just leave me behind

Dance caliber, sweet blue, behind her eyes
Diamonds on cheek, sparkle and shine
He holds her softly, rocking where they lay
Light shifting, bright to ashen grey

Tin shoulders rise and fall
Stand to meet the coming tide
The flow of tears that tear away
The tiers and ties that'd bind and sway

This all seems so familiar

Do we need all this extra weight?
What's burried should stay burried.

Just leave me...

One more refrain, before we leave
One more, one less we
