Sighing One Charred Name [Alt. Vers.]

Ballads soaked in black
Bleed through drywall cracks

Floor tiles curled and crushed
Indifference layered rust

Mazes of iron pipes
Map unrelenting nights

Dusty petals hidden
Ashes trail unbidden

Shimmer beyond claim
Sighing one charred name

Soothing your scorched skin
Redemption’s violin


Note:  This alternate version of Sighing One Charred Name was inspired by Rich Kamerman’s comments on the original.  You can find Rich revisiting and discussing his extensive music collection at KamerTunesBlog.
