She spent her days in the library,
Hidden behind her daily choice of fairytales in her normal nook.
She could draw and she could sing.
People always admired the doodles she drew on her notebooks.
She was the tall 5 pm streetlights during summer,
Some would notice that they were on too early in the day,
The rest would’ve seen the lights as part of the sorbet colored sky,
Blended into the warm summer like background colors.

I’m constantly choking on desolation.
Never thought I’d see such vicious fish in the sea,
I’m scared as hell but I can’t flee.

Staring down on us
An eye of pure brightness

The sun rises in the East,
And sets in the West,
But my day only starts when I see you.
I wait for the the day to rise,
Another chance to see you
Another chance to be with you.
