Remember when, not long ago
These silent streets masked as home?
Walked down, stepped on,
Paths in nighttime life were drawn.
Moonlight shattered treetops
Piercing the air, a heart stops.
Between each leaf, a silent glow-
It watches, listens, no one knows.
Time lost in a flow of words.
An electric buzz is all that’s heard.
Withering hope is ignited,
A chain reaction, pulse excited.
Face flushed, a hint of fear,
But happiness is the most near.
Closing in, but so far away.
Never to stay, never to stay.
