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

Sleeping Sunrise

The aurum of just after day

Sincere and so serene

Golden sets of mannequins, they’re reaching for the sea

The plastic wishes fragile yet extreme

Washes away in our sleeping sunsets

I guess

No let’s —

Find our ever-after

Bathed in moonlit matter

Neon lights and laughter

Drunken stupor or dragging dancer

Just questions with no answers

Knowing that tomorrow is another day

Lie here in a dream
