My darkness looms


With a strange coldness

When the sun goes

I will be praying for the moon

If the moon goes

I will be praying for the stars

So you can see me

If I have none

I will be but a hollow trunk

Blank and shrunk

I live

Spending in a breathless shadow

Off the madness

Of my heartless loneliness

A shadow

Of faithless embraces

You follow me

Sometimes a haunt

Sometimes just what I want

My heart halts

Just at the thought

Of a shadow
