Ode to twilight


Rei W.

I’ve been collecting sleepless nights

Where Fires spread and nightmares blur

Endless falls and dimming lights

And never a memory to be sure


I’ve never felt a pain so great

As the wounds foster in my mind

And I realize my greater fate

I was never made to fight design


This is just the way things are

And how they manifest to be

I could wish upon a shooting star

But it would never whisper back to me.
