Take Out

Can I have the moon to go?

Dimly lit chamber holds the soul

Empty appetite leaves one whole

Gaze into the stars

With less luster than her eyes

Admire from afar

Feel further than the sky is

A smile is

Sweet temperament

Bitter torment

Curt silence

Cute demeanor

A seance

A ghost, to have seen her

More seasoned memories

That make me a believer

In wishing on fallen stars

Alive in the Moonlight

You want the sun while I want the rain

You want the love and I want the pain 

You want your space and I want to breathe

As I suffocate, you ask me to stay but I need to leave

You and I are a different breed

We are not the same in the way that we bleed

You wait for the rainbow after 

I only want an infinite night 

You’re a golden sun of laughter

I’m all teary stars with streaks of moonlight

Now angry with me, red hot vermillion

While I’m still blue, cold lights spread into millions 

My eyes are sleepy when you kiss me

The highs and lows in an eclipse we…

Are sure to go our separate ways 

I’m for the nights and you’re for the days 

You are my only but all my dreams won’t let me stay

We’ll be in each other’s nightmares that never go away
