every time you leave
i wish it is a sunset
and i wait laying and lying
hoping you will return as a sunrise

harsh in your remembrance but
sweet in your memories
you tell me a story
that meanders through my mind as i
look at you curling your hair
with your fingers in a loop

a story that foretells my
ignorance even before
you catch me aloof
going down that spiral
you can’t follow me to
neither can I tell you its way
because I get lost in it too

then in the night
I tap into thoughts
darker than what surrounds me
to the point where I become it and
It becomes me

Then I wait for you
to return as a sunrise
with another story
another tale of my ignorance
