Setback, Recovery

Avalanche of blue came raining down
No place I sought was safe from such a storm
And I was lost beyond mere sight or sound
Escape, a heated effort to stay warm

Black lace smoke from fire fills the sky
Unbinding all the ties that once held fast
I see t’was all in error and a lie
What I had then believed would always last

No souvenir’s nostalgia holds me back
And keeping no memento-memory
I move unfettered down the narrow track
The collar has been broken, I am free
