Is it ok if a poem doesn’t suffer?
Because I felt you move
through my blood like a light

Do you want to know the part that hurt the worst?
Because I’d rather talk
about how we conquered the world

Leaves will still fall
in the darkest of silence
to feed of the soil
where new wings are formed

Spread wide your eyes and your tongue
for the trial
and bless all our dreams
during day or the night

Do stars always fade when extinguished at core?
Because I found roaring fire
at the site of this crash
