in this cost complicated

as the evening looms

and the owls stir electrified

flashing eyes in the gloom

bringing back to me my darling

who i lost the other day

holds me tight till i’m together

so i never fade away


easy on my senses all the lack of it

nothingness in a room

clutching you

caressing claws of shadows

will it ever let you go

and if i find the heart to turn and

switch the sights

live in lights

will it show

all the fears and failures that i feel tonight

were never there at all
