Went outside by instinct at night,
accompanied by a dim ambiance of fluorescent light.
Awaiting to be dazed by the starry night.
Woefully, there were none at sight.
The thought of you brings a tiny spark.
The night light that shields me from demons
lurking in the dark.
The lips on my face carve an arc
but this all strays away when I throw the dart.
This rope that grasps us together,
ragged but sometimes is mended
Used, mangled, and twisted.
Yet the pain the stains my heart
is never terminated.
I lie to myself hoping this would turn out fine,
but the lies I keep devouring does not resolve
my hunger when I dine.
This lifeless flame striving to shine
Yet you are the breeze that extinguishes
this desire that was once mine.
